Alabaster in Nmec


The National Museum of Egyptian Civilization (NMEC) is a museum of big dimensions (23.235 square meters of exhibition space), located in the ancient city of Fustat, now part of Cairo. The museum opened partially in February 2017.1 It has a collection of 50,000 artifacts that depict Egyptian civilization from prehistoric times to the present.

About the alabaster that we sent, there are about 120 alabaster urns composed of alabaster pieces of approx 120 x 90 cm, 240 x 90 cm, 120 x 54 cm, 120 x 25 cm, and over 500 pieces of alabaster. Each piece is composed of several pieces of alabaster glued together and laminated on extra-clear glass 1 cm thick, giving resistance to alabaster on the inside of the urn,
