Images of Egypt, then and now


This week, Ellie is participating in "Tomb Raiders" art camp at the Sewickley Arts Center.  The focus is art of ancient Egypt.  So far, she's created a headpiece, breastplate and cuff


and paintings of a mummy and of an Egyptian princess with hieroglyphics.  


She loves it!  

Funnily enough, this is also the week of much (more) upheaval in modern Egypt.  First, she spotted a very confusing photo on the cover of the New York Times.


"This is Egypt?  Do they have any kids?"

And then yesterday, the new Economist arrived.
