Gifts of the Nile: Faience from Ancient Egypt - hardcover

ID: 972988704

Thames & Hudson, May 1998. Hardcover. Used - Very Good. Although made of common materials, faience took on the splendor of gold or semiprecious gems and was highly prized by the ancient Egyptians. This is the first publication to analyze fully the significance of faience in ancient Egypt, and to present the most marvelous examples of its creations. More than 150 pieces, drawn from public and private collections around the world are reproduced and described here in detail. 350 illustrations, 150 in color. One of the ancient world's most beautiful forms of ceramic is today known as Egyptian faience. The ancient Egyptians named it tjebnet, meaning that which is brilliant or scintillating, and in their eyes it glistened with symbolic light. Although faience was made of common materials, especially quartz sand grains or crushed quartz pebbles, it nevertheless took on the splendor of gold or semiprecious gems. The creative variety was astonishing: from 36,000 faience tiles lining underground rooms in King Djoser's Third Dynasty Step Pyramid complex to tiny plaques for furniture inlay, from jewelry to statuary, from female fertility objects to perfume containers, amulets, inkwells, animal tomb gifts, mummy masks, and a host of other forms. This is the first publication to analyze fully the significance of faience in ancient Egypt, and to present the most marvelous examples of its creation. Under the skilled editorship of Florence Friedman, the world's leading scholars in the field -- from the Metropolitan Museum of Art; the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; the Cleveland Museum of Art; the British Museum; and elsewhere -- show how faience was used and produced, as well as its symbolic values and meanings. More than 150 pieces, drawn from public and private collections around the world, are reproduced in color and described in detail. This dazzling display looks at the origins of faience, and at its use in royal life, in daily life, and in connection with death and rebirth. Scientific data resulting from analyses of faience objects, a specially compiled glossary, and a comprehensive bibliography complete the work., Thames & Hudson

Gifts of the Nile: Ancient Egyptian Faience Auflage: 01 - hardcover

1998, ISBN: 9780500237540

ID: 26441

Auflage: 01 288 Seiten, 483 illustrations, 224 in colour, 31,0 x 23,8 x 2,8 cm, mit Schutzumschlag Gebundene Ausgabe Created from common materials, but possessing the majesty of gold and semi-precious gems, the ceramic now known as faience was used by the ancient Egyptians for a variety of luxury objects. Dolls were fashioned from it, as were baby feeders docorated to magically protect mother and child. Faience could be shaped into mummy masks, amulets, chalices, bowls, inkwells, jewelry, tiles and inlays for furniture. Its great popularity could have been due to one particular characteristic: radiance and brilliance, to the Egyptians a perfect metaphor for life, death and rebirth. This work analyzes the significance of faience, and presents illustrations of nearly 200 pieces drawn from public and private collections in Europe and America. It shows how faience was used and produced, as well as its symbolic values and meanings.
