Edited by Gianluca Miniaci, Juan Carlos Moreno García, Stephen Quirke and Andréas Stauder, “The Arts of Making in Ancient Egypt. Voices, images, and objects of material producers 2000–1550 BC”.
During the past decades, in the collective imagination the figure of the ancient Egyptians who were at the base of material production fluctuated between various dimensions, often conflicting with each other, from “slaves” to “artisans”, from “workers” to “artists”, without finding ever a single representative form. This volume, therefore, aims to analyze the mechanisms of material production in Egypt during the Middle Bronze Age (about 2000-1550 BC), searching its more complex understanding, in order to get away from a series of modern preconceptions and to approach a more authentic profile that the ancient Egyptian artisans had of themselves, through the analysis of their words, their images and their artifacts. The contributions of the volume are intended to provide an innovative analysis of the network of relationships between materials and human beings, on the circulation of ideas and on the social profiles of the people involved in the material production of ancient Egypt.
