Drawing from the vast holdings of the British Museum and the Cleveland Museum of Art, this book surveys how pharaohs were portrayed across three millennia of ancient Egyptian history. Beautifully illustrated in 180 color photographs, these objects include monumental sculpture, architectural pieces, funerary objects, exquisite jewelry, and papyri. These essays cover the position of pharaoh from many angles, discussing conceptions of kingship, the exercise of power, royal daily life, military conflicts, propaganda, and death and afterlife.
