The Latest Issue of KMT Magazine

Fig 1 - Sphinx of Senusert  III, 12th Dynasty
     The Latest Issue of KMT Magazine is available on newsstands and as always there are a number of really interesting articles.

     The feature article in this issue is a description of the Metropolitan Museum's special exhibit "Ancient Egypt Transformed". The exhibit features some of the major works of Middle Kingdom art from the Metropolitan, Brooklyn, Louvre and Kunsthistoriches Museum (Vienna). There are also pieces from Stockholm, London, Manchester and Kansas City among others. I have not yet seen this exhibit (I am planning on going to the Met next weekend) and will give a more detailed write up about it once I get to it. For the time being I have included a few photos of two objects from the Metropolitan Museum that are in the exhibit.

     Raymond Johnson weighs in with a re-interpretation of a famous Amarna talatat block that I think is right on the money. Add in an article on the Egyptian collection in Marseille, an Amarna head in Turin and a short biography of Egyptologist Georges Daressy along with the magazine's usual collection of great photographs and you have another excellent issue of KMT.

     You can find the magazine at Barnes & Nobles or you can subscribe at their website.
