Wallpaper Wednesday: Hatchepsout by Pierre Frey
Happy Wallpaper Wednesday!
Pierre Frey has released an incredible new collection, Merveilles d’Égypte.
Working in partnership with the Louvre to celebrate, in particular, the bicentenary of the discovery of hieroglyphs by Champollion in 1822, these new textiles, wallpapers and rugs collections display a wide range of motifs and drawings, between faithful reproductions and free inspirations, with a respectful view of the preserved works but also a contemporary and graphic reading.
Watch the video about this collection HERE.
Hatchepsout is a certain favorite.
This wallpaper reproduces the decorations of the coffin of a woman discovered in the cemetery of Gournet Murraï and used during the reign of Hatshepsut, wife of the pharaoh Thutmose II, who became pharaoh herself after the death of her husband during the New Kingdom. It shows a man in a loincloth, a standing woman and a representation of Anubis and the eye of Udjat, a protective symbol. Printed in wide width on fibrous woven fabric. This emblematic object is kept in the Department of Egyptian Antiquities of the Louvre.
