Many of the funeral procession scenes of the ancient nobles of the New Kingdom have survived in their tombs in Thebes. This iconographical and archaeological exploration of the depictions from forty seven Eighteenth Dynasty and twenty four Ramesside period tombs, takes the reader on a voyage of discovery. This book is novel in that it is the first to discuss the artistic development of funerary scenes over the four hundred years of the New Kingdom, covering the different reigns of the period. It shows the sequence of events in the funeral processions and how they developed over the course of time. Moreover, it covers many different sites in the Theban necropolis, including scenes from many closed and unpublished tombs. This first ever survey describes the pictorial drama that was the funeral procession; from its very beginning through the various acts, participants and divinities playing out their parts, to the grand finale. It draws the reader's attention to unexplored themes of rare and unique scenes, and finally, it shows the echoes that remain from these ancient funerals in modern Egypt today, and how these can be matched to those depicted in the tomb scenes.

This important new study looks at the intersection of Greek and Egyptian art forms in the funerary sphere of Roman Egypt. A discussion of artistic change, cultural identity, and religious belief foregrounds the detailed analysis of more than 150 objects and tombs, many of which are presented here for the first time. In addition to the information it provides about individual works of art, supported by catalogue entries, the study explores fundamental questions such as how artists combine the iconographies and representational forms of different visual traditions, and why two distinct visual traditions were employed in Roman Egypt.

The enduring popularity and fascination with the art of Egypt is at the heart of this volume. This completely new survey sets out to shatter any conventional beliefs that Egyptian art is obsessed with funerary themes and full of static renderings of the human form. The authors present this art, which has a 7,000 year history, as a product of a civilization wholly different from our own. One hundred of the most significant pieces from the Brooklyn Museum of Art are chronologically organized, revealing how Egyptian 'art' developed and progressed.
