It is no secret that the rich history of Egypt is full of remarkable rulers. One name in particular has transcended the centuries like no other... that of Ramses the Great, or Ramses II. A warrior who reconquered lost lands of the Egyptian empire, negotiator of the most famous peace treaty of antiquity, and builder of pharaonic Egypt, his representations are countless.
Through this exceptional exhibition in the Grande Halle de la Vilette, Paris, discover treasures that are among the most precious in the world, including the Treasure of Tanis, and fascinating stories about Ramses, his life, his reign, and his legacy. A collection of incredibly well-preserved masterpieces are presented: animal mummies, statues, sarcophagi, royal masks, sumptuous jewelry, and amulets. These treasures, richly adorned with gold and silver, were found in the tombs of pharaohs and testify to the great skill of Egyptian artists.
The exhibition also inaugurates an immersive virtual reality experience showcasing perhaps the most impressive monuments of Ramses II: the temples of Abu Simbel and the tomb of Queen Nefertari.
