Preparing for Eternity: Egyptian False Doors

from Penn Museum

Program image

What did the inside of an ancient Egyptian tomb look like? What did people take with them into the afterlife? Students learn about hieroglyphs, tomb offerings, and false doors—ancient Egyptian passageways between the worlds of the living and the dead. Students then create their own false doors by drawing hieroglyphs,ancient Egyptian art motifs, and the things they’d take to the afterlife.
