PHOTOGRAPHIC MISION TO THE PRIVATE TOMBS WITH VITICULTURE AND WINEMAKING SCENES IN LOWER EGYPT
In December 2013, Mahmoud Ibrahim and Mr Ahmed Amin Abdel-Rahim, photograph of the Supreme Council of Antiquities working at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, went to Lower Egypt (Giza Governorate), to accomplish the third photographic mission of the the “Irep en Kemet” Project.
A total of 25 tombs with viticulture and winemaking scenes were located, identified and photographically recorded. This work is being done with the authorization of the Egyptian Supreme Council for Antiquities.
The “Irep en Kemet” Project has accomplished, between the 24th and the 28th November 2013, the second phase of the photographic mission to record all the Egyptian private tombs with viticulture and winemaking scenes. This time Mahmoud Ibrahim, head of the mission, and Mr Ahmed Amin Abdel-Rahim, photograph of the Supreme Council of Antiquities working at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, went to Middle Egypt to Asiut, Miniya and Beni Sueif to photograph the tombs located there.
Irep en Kemet (El vino del antiguo Egipto), es un proyecto de la Universidade Nova de Lisboa, financiado por la Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia de Portugal (PTDC/HIS-ARQ/112562/2009), cuyo objetivo principal es documentar y analizar la iconografía de viticultura y enología presente en las tumbas privadas del antiguo Egipto.
