Divided and reunited - The statue of Nacht-hor-heb
| Neues Museum
Lecture series of the Association for the Promotion of the Egyptian Museum
This naophore for a man named Nacht-hor-heb from the 26th Dynasty is one of the highest quality surviving examples of its time. The lecture will address the function of the statue, but also the structure and content of the extensive inscription.
A special aspect of this exhibit is that the head had been on display in Berlin since 1814, while the lower part was only purchased almost 180 years later through the Berlin Collection Support Association.
Speaker: PD Dr. Jan Moje
