Lo-fi Amanda Zeigler
amandazeigler Today I found Kayleigh hard at work drawing this Great Blue Turaco (Corythaeola cristata), a bird endemic to the forests of Africa. This particular specimen she's using was collected in Sudan in the 1970s. #thatmuseumlife #birdsofafrica #fieldmuseum #turaco #artiseverywhere 44min

om_human #Egyptian bust #resembles #MichaelJackson on display in Inside #AncientEgypt, which opened in 1988 at the #FieldMuseum in #Chicago. This bust of an #Egyptian woman is nearly 3,000 years old, yet the #resemblance to the late #KingOfPop is uncanny. The #bust has been a part of the #Museum's collection since 1899 and was collected by #EdwardAyer, who spearheaded the founding of the Museum. bust was made during the New Kingdom Period (1550 BCE to 1050 BCE) which is the same time period as King Tut and Ramses. According to the curator, 95% of Egyptian statues and busts were defiled by earlier religious people because the statues were looked at as idolatry. Taking the #nose off made them '#nonhuman' and less offensive... It appears that Michael Jackson knew of this bust and tried to use #plasticsurgery to match every detail right down to the defiled nose. #4biddenknowledge 2h
