Thank you

I’m very grateful to several people for their kind assistance and encouragement (in the middle of a pandemic):

Dr Francisco Bosch-Puche, Archive Curator at the Griffith Archive, Oxford University

Marcel Marée, Assistant Keeper of the Dept of Egypt & Sudan at the British Museum

Harry DeBauche, Project Object Conservator at the Brooklyn Museum

…also, whoever took the object pictures for the British Museum’s website did a fantastic job.

Finally, my deepest admiration goes out to the Egyptian craftspeople who developed and executed this beautiful design so incredibly long ago.


  1. What a beguiling blog, Paul!
    Even for someone who will never ever touch a woodworking tool, your descriptions are enticing, clever and clear. And the end result is a masterpiece!
    Best, Ellen S.
