Format: Hardcover
The Luxor Museum is small but contains many great artifacts of all types. This photographic approach uses some of the finest examples on display to take the reader through the museum in the order of a tourist visit. A plan of the museum is included. The great majority of photos are of free-standing statues in the round, mainly of royals and a few deities. They are superb examples, mostly of the 18th dynasty. Two outstanding figures that merit mention are the seated statue of Tuthmosis III in black granite, and the magnificent and rarely seen alabaster statue of Amenhotep III with the crocodile-headed god Sobek.

There is so much more that could have been included. It's a nice book of 41 limited color photos that could have been a great volume had it depicted more of the awesome artifacts on display.

Will look good on your coffee table.

Was a good overview of Luxor Museum. In fact so good that after our son's dog chewed up the copy we bought in Luxor we bought another one from Amazon to replace it. If you can't make it to the Luxor Museum then buy the book.

Loved the book and the photographs are exceptional. Not a compliant - but it left me wanting more. It could have been a larger volume - but it is just a tease. Still love it though.

A publication with very good pictures. It is like visiting the museum proper, which I did many times.
