CAIRO – 29 December 2020: The Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities and the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization started adding an aesthetic touch to the main entrance to the museum prior to its opening.
That is in cooperation with Helwan University, to benefit from the artistic and educational capabilities of the students of the Faculties of Fine Arts, Applied Arts and Art Education at the university.
Head of the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization Ahmed Ghoneim explained that the students beautified the plants' basins with drawings that reflect the manifestations of art in different historical eras in Egypt, in addition to decorating the area by installing some marble columns, carved with antique inscriptions.
Also, a number of paintings were designed that illustrate the museum's content and its archaeological treasures, reflecting the different eras of the ancient Egyptian civilization.
It is worth noting that the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization is considered one of the most important projects undertaken by the Egyptian state and is carried out in cooperation with UNESCO, to become one of the largest museums of civilization in Egypt and the Middle East with a new vision of the ancient Egyptian heritage, as the museum includes all aspects of the richness and diversity of Egyptian civilization since the prehistoric era to the present day.
