Egyptian AmuletsThe Symbolic World of Egyptian Amulets The amulets of ancient Egypt are an extraordinary testimony to the unique originality and wealth of Pharaonic civilisation. This intriguing book unlocks their symbolic secrets. Small as they are, they speak to us on many topics: the everyday cares of the Nile Valley peasant in an environment he has yet to master, the complexity of the pantheon and the sacred bestiary, the subtle physiognomies of royalty. Using the approach pioneered by Jacques-Edouard Berger, ever sensitive to what the object has to say, we discover the outcome of an ardent quest for universal, divine harmony, through objects that communicate the expression of all beauty and plenitude. Most of the amulets shown are on display in the Musee de Design et d'Arts Appliques Contemporains (MUDAC) at Lausanne, where the Jacques-Edouard Berger collection is on long-term loan.

Hidden Treasures of Ancient EgyptHidden Treasures of Ancient Egypt By leading Egyptologist and author, Zahi Hawass, this sumptuous book of rare Egyptian antiquities from the tomb of Tutankhamun and other archaeological sites, many never published before, showcases the best collection of Egyptian art through the ages and recounts the adventures that led to their discovery. Hidden Treasures features rare antiquities that embody the mystery of the world's oldest and most refined civilisations and will feed a market hungry for the glories of ancient Egypt. The 100-plus artefacts were chosen from thousands stored at the century-old Egyptian Museum in Cairo and other storehouses all over the country. World-famous Egyptologist Zahi Hawass takes the reader on an adventure of discovery, telling the stories of how these stunning objects were unearthed by archaeologists over the last 150 years, then rediscovered in the storehouses where they had been packed away for decades. Some have not been seen since Howard Carter and others discovered them. Many have never been featured in a publication before, including 3,000-year-old objects from the tomb of boy king Tut.

Masterpieces of Egyptian ArtThe Cairo Museum: Masterpieces of Egyptian Art This work is a showcase for the treasures of the Egyptian Museum in Cairo.

Highlights include the 4000-year-old jewels of a princess from Dahshur, shown for the first time to a non-specialist audience, the funerary treasure of Queen Ahhotep, the tombs of the kings and queens at Tanis on the Nile Delta, and statues from the Temple of AmenRe at Karnak.
