Description

The smallest of the three Giza pyramids was built for Egypt’s Fourth Dynasty ruler, King Menkaure. In 1908 and 1910, Harvard University-Boston Museum of Fine Arts Expedition excavators found a series of statues in the king’s valley temple. These masterpieces show Menkaure in the company of various gods and mortals. Florence Friedman (Visiting Scholar, Department of Egyptology and Assyriology, Brown University) will speak about how these statues established Menkaure as not only eternal ruler of Egypt, but also of the entire cosmos.
