The Center for the Revival of Ancient Egyptian Art



The Center for the Revival of Ancient Egyptian Art was established in 1982 to protect and renew the arts of Egypt through the reproduction of works from many different eras of Egyptian history. The Centers artists are trained in the exact imitation of historic styles and techniques, and are skilled in replicating objects from the Pharaonic, Greco-Roman, Coptic, and Islamic periods. Some specialize in the reproduction of Coptic icons. Others create textiles in both the Coptic and Islamic traditions. Experts in Pharaonic and Greco-Roman art produce replicas of reliefs, statues, mummy portraits, and other works from those periods. The Center also produces models of important monuments, such as the Great Sphinx at Giza.

Each artwork to be reproduced is studied in detail; even the inscriptions are carefully transcribed. The resulting high-quality replicas allow wider study of pieces such as tomb reliefs that cannot be moved to galleries for exhibition. Reproductions created by the Centers artists also serve to beautify public spaces throughout Egypt: an 18-meter high replica of a statue of Ramesses II, for example, stands along the road to Cairo Airport. The Center is dedicated to preserving the historic art of Egypt for future generations, and to showcasing the great tradition of Egyptian art.
