This week textile conservation made a “bedtime blanket” for the mummy on display in the new Antiquities and Classical Art gallery. How do you tuck a mummy in for bed? And why? He doesn’t require a bedtime story or a cup of tea, but he does get this blanket to protect him from the light when he isn’t on display. Come see him when he’s “awake” in the newly-remodeled gallery (G102) outside the Rosenthal Education Center!
The Cincinnati Art Museum is supported by the generosity of tens of thousands of contributors to the ArtsWave Community Campaign, the region's primary source for arts funding.
