The Luxor Mummy: The Fantasy and Reality of Egyptian Mummy Magic
Date: Tuesday, September 29th
Time: 8pm
Admission: $8
Location: Morbid Anatomy Museum, 424 Third Avenue, 11215 Brooklyn Ny


The mystical and magical power of Ancient Egyptian Mummies has long been a fascination to modern society, from medicinal uses to inspiration as prophetic stage prop. However, according to other ancient societies, Egypt was considered to possess more magic than the rest of the world. Using Howard Thurston and his Luxor Mummy as a starting point, Egyptologist in Residence, Ava Forte Vitali, will guide us through  some of the actual magical associations with mummies held by the Ancient Egyptians,  and introduce us to a few of the notable royal mummies discovered in Luxor that continue to inspire modern popular culture.

Ava Forte Vitali completed her Master's Degree in Art History and Archaeology, with a specialization in the Egyptian and Classical World, at the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University. Her research interests include the interaction of the physical and spirit world in Ancient Egypt, archaeology of the household, and Ancient Egyptian domestic and ancestor cults, on which her Master's focused. She has excavated at sites in Egypt and Turkey, and is a Collections Manager for Greek and Roman Art at the Metropolitan Museum of art. She is currently writing a contribution on the Arts and Archaeology of Ancient Egypt, for an upcoming text book on the introduction to Art History.
