Egyptian Goddess 276x

The worshipped gods in Ancient Egypt almost seem innumerable and their manifestations countless. Some gods were portrayed as humans, some as animals and quite a few as hybrid creatures. Introducing to the many gods, their forms of appearance and their individual stories, the State Collection of Egyptian Art will shed light on one of world history's richest polytheistic cultures. The exhibition "Gottes-Bilder" (Images of Gods) will also explain ancient religious practices and the belief in the hereafter 2.500 years ago. For more information, visit
