i visited torquay museums brnd new egypt section today
thats right i did say torquay! lol

it was very smart

it consists of a mummy case of the late period with mumified remains not originally of that period

and a reconstruction of the occupant Smile

here is the full legnth coffin lid



a detail of that coffin lid with inlayed eyes



here is a detil of the upper part of the remains displayed in the coffin base

covered in fine blue glazes faience bead netting and the four sons of hours and a heart scarab

all of whic belong to the later occupant (for which the coffin was not made for but was reused in the later late period in a time of decline Smile



here is a laser carved model of the little boy made from the cat scan





and a few of the shabtis (from differing periods)

Smile I can honestly say that I had never ever heard of the Torquay museum.
The exhibit looks interesting though.

I really love the reconstruction of the little boy. He looks like a mischievous little kid. He looks rather cute with that little smirk on his face Very Happy

The Torquay is a new one for me too, jamie malloy. That's a very nice display and a beautiful coffin. The reconstruction of the occupant is very charming--a cute little kid.

Where is this museum, exactly?

LOL So that's the way you usually dress? I suppose no one on the streets gives you a hard time! Twisted Evil
