Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 2, 2006
One of the finest private collection of ancient Egyptian artifacts, the Mansoor Amarna Collection, is now available to the public through e-Powersellers.
This collection was obtained during the first half of the last century by M. A. Mansoor, a Cairo antiques dealer. Thirty-two of the more interesting and rare artifacts remain in the possession of the family. While rarely shown to the public, the authenticity has been verified independently; a list by several authorities is available upon request.
The family has chosen e-Powersellers to provide a selection from the collection for sale on eBay. The first item is now available for viewing at [eBay Auction Item
Authentic artifacts are rarely if ever available for sale and certainly never of this caliber.
Philip Dye, manager of e-Powersellers, stated “Having recently viewed the Tutankhamen exhibit at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, I was greatly impressed that such quality in the Mansoor Collection was available outside of any museum.”
Although ancient Egyptian civilization lasted for over three thousand years, the Amarna period was roughly 1,367 to 1,350 BC. It began with the Akhenaten (The First Monotheist) and Nefertiti establishing a magnificent new capital city. Today this area is called Tell-el-Amarna, also known as El Amarna or simply Amarna. This short period ended during the reign of Tutankhamen.
