Accompanying an exhibition held at the Palazzo Grassi in Venice, this book is a beautiful tribute to the images, artworks, lives and legacy of the New Kingdom pharaohs. More than 600 colour photographs complement a series of thematic essays on the dual image of the pharaohs as royal sovereigns and as private personalities. Christiane Ziegler, along with a host of other contributors including Sydney H Aufrere, David P Silverman, Dominique Valbelle, Francesco Tiradritti and Erik Hornung, discuss the nature and function of the rulers, their divinity, image, state and administration, their role as builders, royal tombs and mummies. The catalogue contains 275 entries, each with a detailed description and a colour photograph.
