Bolton's Egyptian objects on tour in the Far East
The exhibition, ‘The Quest for Immortality’ is almost entirely composed of objects from Bolton’s collection and features a full-scale reproduction of the tomb chamber of Thutmose III.
Thutmose III was one of the most powerful kings of ancient Egypt and his tomb is known for its wall paintings. We are very excited about this rare opportunity to share our wonderful collection with a wide range of people in Asia.
Over the next few months, we will be preparing the objects travelling to Taiwan for transport and exhibition. This preparation will make it necessary to remove some objects from our current display. This gives us the opportunity to bring out objects from storage that haven’t been on exhibit for many years.
As a result, between January and May 2011, there will be the chance of some disruption to the Egypt gallery, but also the prospect of seeing many new treasures.
You will be able to follow the progress of this project on the website, on our Facebook pages, and on Twitter.
