Vision and Message
Beauty and luxury through the ages
Hurghada Museum’s display scenario highlights the ancient Egyptians’ taste for what is beautiful, and the importance that they placed on the concept of beauty. This is apparent in the Egyptian artist’s ingenuity throughout ancient and Islamic Egypt, through to the modern period. Indeed, Egyptian art highlighted beauty in various forms, all of which were expressions of culture and the environment as seen through the artist’s eyes. These thus manifested in an unparalleled diversity of beautiful and luxurious objects exhibiting breath‑taking attention to detail.
Beauty was expressed in everything, from objects that were used in daily life, including jewelry, eating utensils, and even tools used for hunting, through to those that were intended for the afterlife. The ancient Egyptian’s passion for depicting life beyond death and how he conveyed the beauty that lies in the concept of resurrection was expressed with the unparalleled creativity and beautifully expressed details with which he decorated coffins and adorned mummies.
