Osiris. Egypt's Sunken Mysteries

Osiris. Egypt's Sunken Mysteries

Museum Rietberg, Zurich 
10 February - 13 August 2017

Saved from the depths off Egypt’s Mediterranean coast: the spectacular exhibition shows almost 300 statues and cult objects, sarcophagi and sacred images from sixteen centuries. They come from two legendary towns, Thonis-Heracleion and Canopus, which sank below the sea and were lost in the 8th century AD. Old questions are answered, new stories are recounted.
