Amarna: City of the Sun God

  • January 26, 2022 through June 18, 2023
  • Glyptoteket
This exhibition traces the rise and fall of Amarna, the magnificent city built by pharaonic Egypt's royal couple Akhenaten and Queen Nefertitti as a new place of residence, which although housing palaces for the royal family, residential areas, workshops and burial grounds, quickly faded away after the couple's deaths. The exhibit spotlights the visual style of the period while also highlighting the religious secular life of the time.
