Ramses II, known as Ramses the Great, was the most celebrated and powerful pharaoh of the New Kingdom, which was Egypt’s golden age. Believed to be a living god, Ramses ruled for 67 years, erecting enormous temples, obelisks, and statues while also expanding Egypt’s empire. Ramses the Great and the Gold of the Pharoahs features one of the greatest collection of Egyptian artifacts ever to travel to the United States. This talk will explore Ramses’ life and discuss the marvelous treasures in this exhibition, from the pharaoh’s colossal royal sculpture to mummies and exquisite Egyptian jewelry.
Ramses the Great and the Gold of the Pharoahs will be at the De Young 8/20/2022 – 2/12/2023.
