Egyptian Art

The Met's collection of ancient Egyptian art consists of approximately 26,000 objects of artistic, historical, and cultural importance, dating from the Paleolithic to the Roman period (ca. 300,000 B.C.–A.D. 4th century).

Egyptian Collar

The design of an elaborately beaded collar from the Tomb of Wah is reinterpreted as a serpentine motif for the Met x Ann Gish collaboration.

Horus

Horus is one of the most significant deities of ancient Egypt, depicted as both a falcon or a man with the head of a falcon. Here, we interpret the color tones of the faience and the movement of the falcon's wings into this two-tone jacquard.

Papyrus, Reed, & Qasaba

Inspired by the textures of ancient Egypt, Reed, Qasaba, and Papyrus are three coordinating fabrics. Papyrus features broad stripes of cut-edge wefts. Qasaba, named for a famous cobblestone street in Cairo, elicits the textures of Masonry. Reed features a narrow stripe of fringe-cut wefts.
