Egypt's Mysterious Book of the Faiyum
Date: 10/06/13 - 01/05/14
Time: 10:00 AM - 05:00 PM
The Book of the Faiyum is an exquisitely illustrated papyrus from Greco-Roman Egypt. One of the most intriguing ancient representations of a place ever found, the papyrus depicts the Faiyum oasis, located to the west of the Nile, as a center of prosperity and ritual. Egyptian jewelry, papyri, statues, reliefs and ritual objects will illuminate the religious context that gave rise to this enigmatic text, which celebrates the crocodile god Sobek and his special relationship with the Faiyum.

Bring the beat back as we build instruments together in our art and music studio all December long. Discover your inner rhythm and share it through each tap of your drum.
