The Pharaohs Exhibition: Manaama, Bahrain

The Pharaohs exhibition in the National Museum in Bahrain presented 120 Ancient Egyptian objects from the Egyptian Museum in Cairo that had been earlier on display at celebrated shows in Venice and Paris. The leading concept of the design was to evoke the natural and cultural environment in which the Ancient Egyptian art evolved, while at the same time allowing full, unperturbed and contemplative appreciation of the exhibited masterpieces.


Commissioned by the Culture & Heritage Authorities, Kingdom of Bahrain.


April 2007–July 2007.
