From the Publisher:

The Egyptian Old Kingdom (c. 2650-2150 BC) was an era of extraordinary artistic achievement-the period that gave us the Sphinx and the pyramids as well as a rich legacy of private tombs, wall paintings, reliefs, statuary, jewelry, and decorative arts. This book, the companion volume to a major traveling exhibition organized by New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Louvre in Paris, showcases the most impressive assemblage of Egyptian art and artifacts since the Tutankhamun exhibition of the late 1970s. Scholarly essays and 650 illustrations bring to life a remarkable panoply of Old Kingdom objects-temple and tomb reliefs, striking gold jewelry, handsome stone vessels, monumental statues, stelae, and exquisite statuettes. Together, text and images create a stunning tribute to the world of the Pharaohs. 650 illustrations, 500 in full color, 9 x 12" Advertising: Art magazines Dorothea Arnold is the Lila Acheson Wallace Curator in Charge of Egyptian Art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, and the author of many books and articles. Catharine H. Roehrig is associate curator in the Department of Egyptian Art at the Metropolitan. Christiane Ziegler is conservateur general of the Department of Egyptian Antiquities at the Louvre in Paris.
