RAFFMA's exhibition of ancient Egyptian artifacts will make its long awaited return in a new exhibition: "Journey to the Beyond: Ancient Egyptians in the Pursuit of Eternity".
Ancient Egyptians built the longest lasting civilization, still admired today for its endurance, mystery and the sheen of its gold. For millennia, people have been fascinated by ancient Egypt, particularly by its people’s relationship to death.
Often seen as obsessed with death, ancient Egyptians loved life and believed in getting it back in the Beyond (afterlife). Their pursuit of the eternal existence and provisioning for the Journey to the Beyond is the story of this exhibition, which presents, in a new context, objects from RAFFMA’s permanent collection and on loan from the Harer Family Trust.
