The ancient Egyptians believed that a beautiful or handsome image was essential for the Afterlife.
Egyptologist Dr Janet Davey will take you on an illustrated journey through the evolution of these funerary masks, portraits, coffins and sarcophagi. Janet will show why it was important to present a handsome or beautiful image for the Afterlife and how this was achieved by the artists.
