Ptolemaic Period circa 305-30 B.C.E.
On display at the Columbus Museum of Art from the Brooklyn Museum Collection.
Sorry this is not better focused. As I was attempting to get the image I heard a shrill, harpy-like voice behind me shrieking “hey,hey,hey, hey” which was soon accompanied by a sharp series of jabbing, stabbing pokes to my back. I turned to see what the bother was about and there was a fiece woman with blue-white hair, no taller than Dr. Ruth Westheimer, behind me yelling at me to “stop that” “you can’t take pictures of that , it doesn’t belong to us” I said that I was not aware of my mortal sin as no signs were posted to prohibit my gross imposition upon her rules and she replied “well it’s part of the exhibit in there (pointing toward the exhibit on loan) and you can’t take pictures of the exhibit” Having already offered an insincere apology for violating a rule that was not postined and patting myself on the back for self-restraint, I lowered my camera and proceeded into the exhibit ‘To Live Forever’ It is a fascinating looki into Egyptian burial practices and artifacts and I regret being unable to share more images but encourage all to attend the show in Columbus, ohio. Open until mid June. Just beware little old ladies with blue-white hair if you are packing a camera
