luxor museum

Although of recent institution the Luxor Museum contains many in­teresting exhibits. The most curi­ous item is the reconstruction of a wall, 18 meters long, from the temple that Akhen-Aton built in Thebes. The two hundred and eighty-three blocks of which it is made up were found in the filling of the ninth pylon of the temple of Amon at Karnak. 

The wall, consist­ing of hundreds of small scenes, depicts, among other things, work in the fields and in artisans’ work­shops and the Pharaoh and Queen Nefertiti worshipping the sun. In a showcase at the entrance to the museum, there is a most elegant bull’s head in gilded wood.
