AKHENATEN: THE REBEL PHARAOH
Host and Egyptologist Bob Brier takes the viewer on a journey back through time to the most radical pharaoh of Egyptian history, Akhenaten, who was a visionary and revolutionary. Born Amenhotep IV, he changed his name to Akhenaten to reflect his belief in Aten as a monotheistic god, rejecting the polytheistic tradition of his country. The “Rebel Pharaoh” was also an artist, who broke from the art forms of the past, creating stylized sculpture and paintings. His artworks are included in the presentation.
