This volume contains a selection of scholarly papers by Kate Bosse-Griffiths. In Part I the topics are related to the amarna era in its wider sense, with reference not only to the reign of Amenophis IV/Akhenaten, but also to the era of this paraoh’s predecessors and successors. An additional characteristic of the majority of these studies is the detailed attention paid to the miniature arts, for example the bead-collars with pendant amulets. The interest for Kleinkunst also applies to many contributions of Part II, whick starts with "A Prehistoric Stone Figure from Egypt", and deals with many very common but often neglected objects such as the Ptah-Sokar-Osiris figures or Egyptian beadwork faces. The volume will thus be most helpful to anybody who deals not just with the highlights of the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, the Louvre or the British Museum but tries to better understand the innumerable objects found in many more ordinary Egyptian collections.
