Description

From 1907 to 1937, the Graphic Section of the Egyptian Expedition of the Metropolitan Museum made precise colored copies (facsimiles) of decorations found in tombs in the cemeteries of western Thebes, across the Nile from modern Luxor. Among the nearly 300 facsimiles on display in the Egyptian galleries is one featuring an offering scene with Amenhotep III, ninth pharaoh of Dynasty 18, and his mother, Mutemwia, copied from a tomb painting from New Kingdom Egypt, ca. 1390–1353 B.C. This type of tomb decoration was limited to the nobility or a small number of the elite. Our vivid scarf showcases the facsimile's colorful banded columns and stylized lotus capitals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Goes with almost anything Colors were more subdued than expected.  However, this scarf seems to go with just about anything.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pale colors It was disappointing to see that the colors on the scarf did not closely match the colors in the catalog.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smart Splash of Color Bought this scarf recently on sale, and it's wonderful! Quality stitching, color dye is perfect and not too bright, but as it is on original art. Great length, not too long. I appreciate when the Met's scarves go on sale, and this one's a winner, thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It’s absolutely gorgeous It wasn’t obvious to me from the photograph exactly how spectacular this scarf was going to be. The colors are vibrant but not tacky, and they go with all kinds of other colors, making the scarf truly versatile.
