"The Human Face and its Relationships with Identity in Ancient Egypt"
A lecture and Video-Conference by Youri Volokhine, Geneva University.

jeudi 27 octobre 2016

In Ancient Egypt, the human face appears to be particularly important for the discourse on the being or identity. The relationship of a person’s face (Egyptian her) with his perceptions (hearing, vision), his emotional states or his identity reflects a significant role of the human face (together with the heart-jb) in society. In the religious sphere, the notion of divine face is also central, especially in ritual and mythological texts. In this paper, I will deal with these two aspects of the face that I have bee investigating for years.
