The Abbey Museum holds many amazing objects that tell the human story from the beginning of time. One culture that has fascinated many visitors to the Museum is ancient Egypt. In the Abbey Museum we have a number of Egyptian objects including a painted panel from a coffin that is in desperate need of conservation. It dates to c1075-332 BC and depicts the goddess Isis holding an ankh, and wearing the solar disk between the horns of Hathor. The beautiful paint work is starting to flake off.
Help us preserve this ancient panel. Be a part of these sustainability efforts and keep Art and History alive in our communities.
