Chaouabtis. Des travailleurs pharaoniques pour l'éternité

Chaouabtis. Pharaonic Workers for Eternity
From march 7 to june 30 2003
For 2000 years the Egyptians deposited funeral servants, called "chaouabtis" or "ouchebtis", in their tombs. They were in charge in the other world of doing all the agricultural tasks in place of the deceased. Royal examples and allusions to tombs guide the visitor in this separate universe.
