Egypt: Life and Death in the Black Land

Coffin of priest Padiashaikhet

From the cradle to the grave – and beyond. Statues of pharaohs, painted mummy coffins; amulets and scarabs; artefacts from daily life to the residue of death; the Book of the Dead; the myths, the legends, the gods.

The Nicholson Museum holds the largest collection of Egyptian antiquities in Australia.
