AN EGYPTIAN ARTIST AT THE BRITISH MUSEUM

NAZIR TANBOULI BRITISH MUSEUM

IF YOU’VE EVER BEEN TO LONDON, you’ll know one of the city’s great wonders is the British Museum. It is one of the wonders of the world. It contains artifacts from every part of the planet from all eras of human history. Amazing place.

It is especially reknowned for its Egyptian collection. As an Egyptian artist in London it’s  a special place for me: it’s where I can go to see Egyptian art from our Pharaonic, Hellenic, Roman and Coptic past.

So, it was a special honour for me to be invited to make a full day of performance drawing, in the Great Court of the museum. I was located between a statue of a  horseman from the Hellenic period and an obelisk from the Pharaonic era.

Thanks to my assistant Anna Chiarini:
