Friends of Maple Grove Workshop on the Egyptian Ushabti
Some photos taken during the first Friends of Maple Grove Workshop on the Egyptian Ushabti event. Small figures were made and the ancient history of this fascinating funerary object was discussed. It became very creative and the setup was great.
Next a basket of ready made Ushabtis will be available to the public with markers and directions so they can inscribe it with the name of a loved one and place on the MG Holiday tree. This was inspired by the Origami Holdiay Tree atthe Museum of Natural History.
