launching a new guided video tour about Egypt

The  Egyptian Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities is launching tonight a new guided video tour for a set of wooden panels decorated with engraved with human, animal, and floral figures. It dates to the Fatimid Period in Egypt (5th century AH / 11th century AD MIA no. 3473)

These wooden panels once adorned the palaces of the Fatimid Caliphs on al-Mu’izz Street between Bab Zuwayla and Bab al-Futuh (Cairo’s then-city gates). These palaces were decorated with scenes drawn from daily life such as hunting, playing music, dancing, and drinking. The engraved decoration executed in several layers reflects the skill of Fatimid artisans. These panels were reused to decorate the huge architectural complex of Mamluk sultan al-Mansur Qalawun on al-Mu’izz street in 684 AH/ 1285 AD
