Through its beautifully designed display of carefully selected masterpieces found in the area of ancient Thebes, the Luxor Museum of Ancient Art illuminates the golden age of pharaonic Egypt. The Nubia Museum in Aswan houses artifacts illustrating the rich heritage and history of Nubia, from the prehistoric era to modern times. Richly illustrated with spectacular color photographs, this book informs the reader about the cultures that created the objects on display, with detailed descriptions of selected pieces. Featured in the tour of the Luxor Museum are statuary from the Luxor Cachette and objects from the tomb of Tutankhamun. The section on the Nubia Museum reveals the history of this fascinating region through sculpture, jewelry, and artifacts of daily life such as pottery and textiles. Also included are brief overviews of two other museums in the south of Egypt, the Mummification Museum in Luxor and the Crocodile Museum in Kom Ombo.
