Akhenaten: Heretic, Visionary and Icon

Akhenaten: Heretic, Visionary and Icon

Date: 23 February – 30 June 2016 | Time: Museum Opening Times | Location: Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology | Price: Free | Age group: Any

A display highlighting the magnificent objects in the Petrie Museum’s collection from Amarna that also explores the ambiguous and contentious figure of Akhenaten. Considered by some as ‘deviant’, by others as a hero, can we ever know who Akhenaten really was or can we only creatively imagine him in opera, art and fiction?

A themed trail to Amarna material on display in the museum collection is available.

Displayed in conjunction with Philip Glass’ Akhnaten at the English National Opera (4-18 March 2016).
