Guardian figure is supposed to protect Egyptian Art
Yesterday, on the news I saw an old Egyptian sculpture was lying unprotected on the floor. According to Metropolitan Museum of Art records below statue is in Egyptian Museum at Cairo. I wonder if this is the same guard. Whether it is the same one or similar, does it make a difference? “This figure was probably used as a dramatic funerary ceremony and then ritually buried”.
The guardian was probably supposed to protect the King in the other world, but now the king in mummy was ironically thrown over to floor of the Museum in pieces. Maybe the guard is protecting the king in the other world but not in this world….
After all through the ages of human evolution, it is unfortunate to say our world is still cruel.
What is going on in Egypt politically is local matter and hope it will be resolved in a good way for the nation of Egypt. But what really bothers me and breaks my heart is how come a world heritage can be damaged irremediably? Such samples of Art and Culture, each and every one of it priceless beauty and objects to carry the world of culture & history to future generations can be thrown away just like that? The good news out of the bad news is the awaked Egyptians are now protecting the museum by their bodies.
Here below, as a tribute to ancient Egyptian Art, I would like to share some photos of Egyptian heritage.
Wishing all the humanity will be fully conscious one day to share the beauty of world culture by protecting and creating . As damaging can only be outcome of primitive mind.
