NordArt 2015 – 06/06 – 04/10/2015
Dalva Duarte is invited for the third time to participate at the “Nordart”, the International Art Festival in North Germany, 6th of June to 4th of Oct. 2015.
She is presenting her work “Imprints of the Portraits of Fayoum”, a huge time´s frieze (3m x 10m), referring to the famous grave paintings found in Egypt in the oasis of Fayoum (engl: Faiyum, also Al-Fayyum), ancient Krokodilopolis or Arsinoe. The mummy portraits, painted on wood panels with a specific wax technique were created during the Roman occupation of the area. They became well known for their unusual individuality.
