Egyptian Pieces in Brazilian Museum
« on: September 03, 2018, 03:39:07 pm »
Em Hotep, Everyone

"Brazil’s oldest and most important historical and scientific museum has been consumed by fire, and much of its archive of 20 million items is believed to have been destroyed."
https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/sep/03/fire-engulfs-brazil-national-museum-rio

There's a website with images of their Egyptian holdings:

Such a tragedy! :'(

Here in Brazil we are all DEVASTATED with this disaster, it is just so sad!

Unfortunately, we don't have investments in the way that should be channeled into culture and heritage, and so many other museums and libraries are at the same risk ... We hope that firm action will be taken to prevent further tragedies like that to happen again.

Here's a lovely collection of photos from that museum:

There's an adorable statue of Bes among the fine pieces.
