ALONG THE BANKS OF THE COLORFUL NILE ©N.G.S. Autochrome Lumifre by Gervais Courtellemont A FACE THAT HAS WITHSTOOD THE RAVAGES OF TWENTY CENTURIES Like the fame of Cleopatra, this wax painting on a sarcophagus of the Ptolemaic epoch, has survived the onslaughts of time. It is a relic of the days when Greek influence was strong in Egyptian art, but such features are still to be found among the women in the Land of the Nile. The wrappings of this mummy are of fine linen.
