Ramses the Great and the Gold of the Pharaohs Exhibition Catalogue
Many kings or rulers have been given the status of a god throughout the many histories of humanity. However, none has reached the scale of opulence and reverence as the rulers of the Nile in Egypt. Ramses II, known as Ramses the Great, was the most celebrated and powerful pharaoh of the New Kingdom—Egypt’s golden age. Believed to be a god on Earth, he ruled for 67 years as part of the 19th Dynasty, erecting enormous temples, obelisks, and statues and expanding Egypt’s empire.
This official catalogue for the exhibition Ramses the Great and the Gold of the Pharaohs at San Francisco's de Young Museum highlights the many masterpieces of Egyptian art and numerous artefacts discovered in the tomb of Ramses the Great, the largest and richest burial chamber ever discovered from Ancient Egypt. Authored by famed Egyptologist Zahi Hawass. Hardcover, 383 pages.
