15 Oct 2004-10 April 2005. The Institut du Monde Arabe recreates the world of the ancient Egyptians with an amazing exhibition, concentrating on the power and the role of the all-powerful pharaohs. Who were these living legends - half human, half god? Why do they continue to grab peoples attention and encourage their imagination? Were they beloved or feared by their peoples? The exhibition attempts to answer these and other questions about this monumental legacy of the past. A number of major works are on show including Tutankhamens colossus, a remarkable 3m tall statue of the boy king, and the lavish treasures of the Tanis dynasty, heirs to the kings of the New Empire. This is a not-to-be-missed opportunity to discover the splendour of Egyptian culture and a curse on those who do!
