There are an enormous number of musicians and dancers depicted in temples and tombs from all periods of Egypt’s dynastic history. Miraculously hundreds of these instruments have survived and were recovered from their ancient tombs.

These priceless ancient instruments have found homes in museums and private collections around the world. Many of these instruments have survived because they were individually wrapped in cloths and preserved in the same tradition as the mummification of their deceased.
