Metropolitan Museum Art Accessory Egyptian Patterns Ballpoint Pen - MM-1802EGY
From 1907 to 1937 the Graphic Section of the Egyptian Expedition of the Met made precise colored copies of decorations found in the tombs of western Thebes. Among the 365 facsimiles on display in the Egyptian galleries are some that reproduce painted ceiling decorations originally created to suggest the tomb chambers were hung with colorfully decorated textiles. The Museum's Egyptian Patterns Pen is based on such textile-derived painted ceilings copied from the tombs from New Kingdom Egypt.
