About The Book
Our endless fascination with ancient Egypt owes much to the beauty of the tomb paintings, statuary, temple reliefs, and other magnificent artworks that are the legacy of this remarkable culture. But despite the multitude of objects and texts that have survived, questions abound, particularly about the true role of women in Egyptian society. This wonderfully illustrated, brilliantly researched book draws on unpublished material from author Zahi Hawass’ own excavations as well as new analyses of older evidence to penetrate the silent images and paint an astonishing picture of women’s lives.Hawass contrasts the stereotype — inspired by such symbols of femininity as the queens Nefertiti and Nefertari — with a more realistic view of the common woman’s everyday involvement in matters ranging from family life to dress and adornment to the workplace and the legal system. Lavish photographs of places and objects, many made especially for this book, round out an enthralling, richly textured work.
