Egyptian treasures at the Grand Palais!

What more magnificent setting could there be for Egyptian archaeological remains? Extraordinary artefacts from underwater archaeological expeditions will be on display in the nave of the Grand Palais: three colossi nearly 6 m high, a large black granite stele with remarkably well-preserved hieroglyphs, ritual and everyday objects (bronze ladles, gold dish, lead votive boats, pottery, coins, jewellery...). Many of these objects illustrate the skills of Egyptian artists and the cultural influence of Greece.
