With Denise M. Doxey, curator, ancient Egyptian, Nubian, and Near Eastern art at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston
During the reign of King Piankhy (r. 732–712 BC), the Nubian kingdom of Napata conquered Egypt, ushering in an era of unprecedented wealth and power. The tombs of Piankhy’s queens and other royal women contained a variety of fascinating objects, including magnificent jewelry, elegant stone vessels, and, in one case, an unusual collection of geological specimens. This talk will present these finds and discuss their materials, techniques, iconography, and archaeological context.
