Pharaoh. The Face of Power Glyptotek, Copenhagen | 12 October 2017 – 25 February 2018 In an impressive special exhibition the Glyptotek gives a glimpse into the power structures, god-worship and everyday life in Ancient Egypt when Pharaoh reigned as a personified god and undisputed authority. Ancient Egypt has always fascinated us. Not least the legendary pharaohs – the kings who ruled over them all, who were more gods than human beings – were the subject of many tales through the ages. In the exhibition, “Pharaoh – the Face of Power” we examine the period 2000-1700 BC, known as the “Middle Kingdom” when the Egyptian realm rose again after a period of decline, and strong pharaohs united the country with centralised power. Here visitors can experience how, 4000 years ago, it was possible to construct personal myths and manage to rule a people – with absolutely no help from spin doctors, the press or the social media.
