The Ancient Egyptian gallery opens

The new Ancient Egyptian gallery opens at the British Museum in London WC1 today. The principal designer at the museum, Geoff Pickup, art-directed the project, with 3D design by At Large and graphics by Lucy Or Robert. Both of these groups were commissioned by the British Museum in 2006. Pickup says, ‘The challenge of the project has been to provide a setting that evokes the confined space of the tomb-chapel, but still allows large numbers of visitors to enjoy the details of the paintings at close quarters.’
