discussion 1264

The websites listed below all discuss the addition of Meretites to the Nelson Atkins Museum.

As you review the materials discuss the following question

What can we learn about the afterlife of Ancient Egyptians from this find?

Where and how did the Nelson acquire the addition to the collection?

How is the artifact preserved?

In your interpretation how can we see art and literature as a combined medium?
