Photographer's Note

This is a shop on the banks of the Nile in Luxor a modern day outlet for an ancient craft.
As in almost all the arts, the ancient Egyptians excelled in their metal-work, especially in the use of bronze and the precious metals. These were worked by casting and hammering, and ornamented by inlay, gilding and enamels with the greatest possible skill.
