HERITAGE OF ANCIENT EGYPT IN THE COLLECTION OF A RUSSIAN ORIENTALIST
Keywords: V. S. Golenishchev, Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts, funeral veil, Russian Egyptology, collection, restoration works This year, the Russian Society of Egyptology celebrates the 160th anniversary of the birth of the famous orientalist, Egyptologist, collector and traveler Vladimir Semenovich Golenishchev (1856-1947). For 30 years, he collected oriental-Egyptian and Near-Asian-antiquities, which are kept today in the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts (GMII). His collection was acquired by the state and transferred to the Museum of Fine Arts (now the State Museum of Fine Arts) in 1909. In honor of the 160th anniversary of the birth of V. S. Golenishchev, the museum opened the exhibition "Two Amenemhats: Portraits of one Tsar of the Middle Kingdom era", and an international conference"At the Origins of Russian Egyptology" was held. And in the museum's workshops, one of the most unique items in its collection is being restored - an old funeral veil. Amenemhat " ... "The Middle Kingdom"... These words can hardly say anything to a person who is not familiar with Egypt. Meanwhile, once at the exhibition, you realize that you can do without special training. None of its visitors felt uncomfortable thanks to "electronic guides" - video screens on the walls of the halls with a running line, where in Russian and English they told about the history of Egypt at that time and its ruler Amenemhat III. You could also book an excursion, for example, for schoolchildren, and listen to a short lecture about Ancient Egypt and the art of that distant time. The exhibition was held in the Main Building of the State Museum of Fine Arts, in the Hall of Ancient Egyptian Art from February 2 to May 9. Basically, there is a permanent exhibition from the ancient Egyptian collection of the museum. These are wooden and stone sarcophagi, statues, reliefs, household items and funerary worship, mummies of people and animals, papyri, vessels and ornaments, figurines of deities and amulets.
