Two 21st Dynasty (1085-945 BCE) mummies and coffins have been on view at the Albany Institute since they were purchased in 1909 from the Cairo Museum. The elaborately decorated coffin was made for Ankhefenmut, a priest in the temple of Mut three thousand years ago. New research has revealed that his mummy cover and the coffin lid are in the collections of London’s British Museum and Vienna’s Kunsthistorisches Museum. This exhibition will reunite the coffin pieces and bring Ancient Egyptian objects to Albany from collections around the world. It will also highlight how Ancient Egyptian artwork and design inspired artists and architects in the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. The Mystery of the Albany Mummies has been funded by GE and IMLS, a federal agency.
