Art HistoryThe Museum’s Egyptian collection is one of the finest in the world. From the painstakingly reassembled statues from the time of Hatshepsut, the great female pharaoh (ca. 1473–1458 B.C.), to the Temple of Dendur, built by the Roman emperor Augustus (about 15 B.C.), the collection offers some 30,000 objects of artistic, historical, and cultural significance. The breadth and depth of this collection provide a remarkable window into the Egyptians’ aesthetic values, history, religious beliefs, and daily life over the entire course of civilization.
