Exhibition: Beyond Beauty – Transforming the Body in Ancient Egypt

The ‘Beyond Beauty’ exhibition is presently showing at Two Temple Place, London and will continue until 24th April 2016.

The exhibition website offers: ‘This major new exhibition not only explores the day-to-day routines of ancient Egyptians, it also addresses the importance of appearance in the afterlife. Alongside extraordinary coffins and funerary head coverings are their owners’ ancient mirrors, combs and hairpins, bracelets, necklaces, sandals, textiles, cosmetic vessels, scent jars and other ornaments, as well as tablets giving us insights into elite styles of the age, which have echoes in the fashion and lifestyle magazines of the present day.’

Wednesdays: 10am – 9pm, Sunday: 11am – 4:30pm
