Join renowned mummy expert Salima Ikram of The American University in Cairo for a lecture about the different types of animal mummies (food, pets, votive offerings, sacred creatures, and “other”). Learn how and why they were made, the theological and aesthetic decisions that went into their “packaging”, the ways they reflect Egyptians’ interaction with the animal world, and their influence on our view of the ancient Egyptians as well as contemporary thought and art.
