Wednesdays 1 May, 5 June, 1.15-2pm.
Join our series of guest speakers for lunchtime conversations discussing key objects from the collection.
This month’s conversation will be: The kneeling statue of the Admiral Hor: Ships and sculpture in Sixth Century BC Egypt. Often overlooked because of its damaged state, the kneeling statue of Hor represents an important military man of the Egyptian Twenty-Sixth Dynasty (c. 595-589 BC). Hor was Admiral of Egypt’s royal Mediterranean fleet at a time of increasingly strained international relations. Campbell Price, Curator of Egypt and the Sudan at the Museum, will discuss Hor’s role and the meanings of his temple statue.
