About this title

Synopsis:

In association with the Institute du Monde Arabe, Paris, and the Kunsthalle, Munich.

The culture of the ancient Sudanese and Nubian Kingdoms is chronicled in this groundbreaking exhibition catalog.

From Library Journal:

Today's largest Arab country, Sudan starts above the confluence of the White and Blue Nile and is situated where Egypt and the rest of Africa converge. Experts calculate that a culture began there more than 6000 years ago, which emerged as the Nile's richest lands and rivaled that of the great Egypt downriver. An international team of scholars has pulled an impressive amount of early kingdom artifacts and treasures together that demonstrate how advanced and prolific a culture it was. Curator Wildung created this exhibition catalog for an exhibition that traveled to Paris, Munich, and northern Europe. Much of the art form seems to parallel that of Lower Egypt with good reason, since Egyptians dominated the peoples of the region for centuries. Sudan possesses, among other things, 223 pyramids. The real interest is in the mix of Nubian and other central African influences. The work has large and beautiful photographs and illustrations; the text has been translated from the French and German editions. Recommended for libraries with African art collections.?David Nudo, "Library Journal"
