Gift Shop

Available now in the gift shop

When you come to see the special exhibition Graffiti as Devotion along the Nile, don't miss the chance to stop by the gift shop to peruse our graffiti-themed items. 

The exhibition's companion catalog, Graffiti as Devotion along the Nile and Beyond, is a slender volume but is packed with information. Eight essays by international scholars explore the phenomenon of graffiti in ancient and Christian-era Sudan, as well as an overview of Nubian rock art and a look at graffiti at Pompeii. The volume concludes with an annotated catalog of graffiti from El-Kurru and a photo essay of the contemporary Nile Valley practice of “hajj images” that commemorate Muslim pilgrimage. Richly illustrated with over 200 full-color photos, this book is a wonderful way to further your knowledge about this little-known topic.

We also commissioned local artist Irina Bondarenko to create a series of mugs that feature some of the graffiti discovered at El-Kurru. Handmade of terracotta and terra sigillata, the mugs are dishwasher and microwave safe.

 

No visit to the Museum is complete without a stop in the gift shop. The Kelsey gift shop offers a tempting selection of collection-inspired items. Whether you are interested in our most recent Kelsey publication, a new piece of jewelry, or a gift or memento for a young museum visitor, make sure you include the gift shop as part of your Museum experience.
