I noticed a lot of hits on my Egyptian posts then I realized there are 2 shows going on right now,
TUTANKHAMUN AND THE GOLDEN AGE OF THE PHARAOHS
NEW YORK CITY: DISCOVERY TIMES SQUARE EXPOSITION
APRIL 23, 2010 – JANUARY 2, 2011
Cleopatra at The Franklin Institute Philadelphia, Pa.
June 5, 2010 – January 2, 2011
So………………….. in the spirit of all things egyptian, here are 2 DVD recommendations…
both are based Agatha Christie Books,
one recreates, pretty much, the adventure of Howard Carter opening King Tutankhamun’s tomb -(with her own storyline and characters )
The Adventure of The Egyptian Tomb/ Film 1993
The other is one of my all time favorites,
Death On The Nile / Film 1978, filled with great 1940’s actors such as Betty Davis and a sweeping scale of egyptian monuments in the background as they are on a cruise down the Nile in the story line – as good as being there!
So enjoy and watch with,
Old Fashioned -1920 recipe
For Muddled variation: Muddle orange slice & cherry in bottom of rocks, glass, with simple syrup, bitters, add liquor & splash of soda.
I threw this one in because it is a reminder of the time in which egyptomania took place and a great example of pastel application and drawing…love it!
