The Egyptian Museum and Papyrus Collection Berlin is a part of the Staatlichen Museen zu Berlin (State Museums of Berlin) and the Stiftung Preußischer Kulturbesitz (Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation). The Foundation is one of the world’s major cultural organisations and all her associated institutions, collections and archives are linked in a close network for cultural transmission. The Egyptian Museum, together with the Shanghai Museum, is planning an exhibition that will include masterpieces of Egyptian and Chinese art.
The ancient cultures of Egypt and China have a millennia-long history and tradition. This can be shown in direct comparison based on five subjects: kingship or symbols of power, writing, divine cult or religious beliefs, daily life and funerary cult. The five “pillars” cover almost the entire range of the two cultures. In some cases we will discover similarities between Chinese and Egyptian art and culture, in other examples, exciting contrasts will arise.
