The Middle Kingdom - 
Objects of Daily Life 
and Ceremony (Issue 2 of 2)

During the Middle Kingdom of Ancient Egypt (mid-Dynasty 11–Dynasty 13, around 2030–1650 B.C.), artistic, cultural, religious, and political traditions first conceived and instituted during the Old Kingdom were revived and re-imagined. Nebhepetre Mentuhotep II—the first pharaoh of the Middle Kingdom—was followed by a great cultural flowering that lasted nearly four hundred years.

In this final issue on this exhibition we take a look at the last of the interesting objects depicting life and ceremony during Ancient Egypt's Middle Kingdom.
