Egypt’s Lost Worlds - In 2018, the Saint Louis Art
Museum will be the first North American art museum to tell the epic
story of one of the greatest finds in the history of underwater
archaeology, a story that revealed two lost cities of ancient Egypt
submerged under the Mediterranean Sea for over a thousand years.
World-renowned underwater archaeologist Franck Goddio and his team
discovered these submerged worlds uncovering stunning ancient
religious, ceremonial, and commercial artifacts, which has led to a
greater understanding of life during the age of pharaohs.
More than 200 of these authentic artifacts, including three colossal
16-foot sculptures of a pharaoh, a queen, and a god will be on view.
Objects range from the colossal sculptures to precious gold coins
and jewelry, bronze vessels, objects inscribed in the ancient
Egyptian or Greek languages, and statues from the sunken and
forgotten ancient cities of Thonis-Heracleion and Canopus. They will
be seen alongside ancient Egyptian artifacts from museums in Cairo
and Alexandria, many of which have never been on view in the United
Admission. Free for members anytime and the public on Fridays.
