antjau

When 2,600 years old you reach, look as good, you will not. This is Antjau, son of Ankhhor and his wife Tjesnitperet. He lived some 2,600 years ago between 715-525 BC in the late period of Ancient Egypt. I guess he does have a kind of afterlife as an exhibit at the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto. I wonder what he would have said if he had known I’d be taking his picture on the other side of the world so long after his death. Shot this on 3 January, 2014.
