10am-4pm. Statues were central to ancient Egyptian religion, but how did the Egyptians use and understand them? This one day course will examine stylistic developments in sculptures of non-royal people, deities and kings, and address the meanings behind them through textual sources. Using the collections of Manchester Museum, Dr Campbell Price will explore the existence of portraiture, the role of sculptors and the rituals designed to bring statues to life.
