The expression “the Gates of Heaven” referred both to the passageway into the afterlife, and to certain everyday objects. The exhibition entitled “The Gates of Heaven. Visions of the World in Ancient Egypt” features some 350 artifacts dating from the Old Kingdom to the Roman Period which it endeavors to place in their social, religious, and artistic context.

It’s a small exhibition – an eye-opener, worthwhile a visit, until June 29th
