Mini interview with Fefi

Members of the NCMA receive e-mails about exhibitions, programs and events as well as notices about what’s going on with the collections and galleries via the Museum blog, Circa.  In the last couple of Circa-related e-mails, members have been introduced to staff bloggers, who answered a couple of questions so you can get to know them better. Guess who was featured this time around?  Our dear ancient Egyptian friend, nobleman and scribe, Fefi!

Below is a screen shot of the e-mail I received (I am a member of the museum). The links in the image are not functional, so I have included them at the bottom of this post.

Fefi, the NCMA's most ancient and noble blogger!

Here are the links mentioned in the mini bio, latest posts: Viper, Viper, Leaf, Nobleman and Name or Nickname? That is the question! Both of these have been featured on An Archaeologist’s Diary. Actually, all of Fefi’s work has been featured!

As for Fefi’s favourite work of art in the NCMA collection, you will find it here: A Meat Stall with the Holy Family Giving Alms. Undoubtedly the meat stall reminds him of something like this (check out the NCMA painting and compare):

Pile of offerings with different cuts of meat (with leeks and bread) on a Middle Kingdom stela at the Nelson Atkins Museum in Kansas City (the paint is probably modern).  I took this picture in 2009.
