Clean, fresh water to drink was as important to our ancient ancestors as it is to us today. This ancient Egyptian is catching cool, refreshing water to drink from the goddess Hathor, who would nourish and protect those in the afterlife.
This person is part of the inscription on the limestone statue fragment of Hathor on display at the the Garstang Museum of Archaeology in Liverpool (accession number E.66). This particular detail is only a few centimetres in height. The statue was excavated by John Garstang at Esna in Upper Egypt and dates to the reign of Ramesses IV, who reigned 1155–1149 BC.
The photo is printed on a bamboo paper – a natural, sustainable and environmentally friendly white paper made from 90% bamboo fibres and 10% cotton, resulting in warm-tones without optical brighteners.
The paper is acid and Lignin-free, which meets the requirements of an age resistant paper and is printed on pre-cut sheets using an inkjet, 12 colour Giclée print process, providing in-depth reproduction of colours and fine details. Prints conform to ISO 9706 museum quality for highest age resistance.
