Egypt And Rome

The Room contains some works of statuary and a relief that were produced to imitate the originals from Egypt and others that represent real re-workings of Egyptian subjects, but in the classical language of Roman art, demonstrating the strong influence exercised by the world of the pharaohs over imperial society (1st-2nd century AD)..
