The Penn Museum Shop has geared up to celebrate the Sphinx — and all things ancient Egyptian — with a complete section of Egyptian art and collectables, much of it imported directly from Egypt.
You can "Walk like an Egyptian" (or at least like a Sphinx) with new signature Sphinx t-shirts for women ($24.99). Look for other Penn Museum Sphinx — related memorabilia (mugs, keychains, and other mementos) created just for the Museum.
Choose from among several resin mini sphinxes ($12.99 to $59.99), or get ready for the new year with a 2014 calendar sporting the great Sphinx at Giza ($14.99).
Love the red granite that Penn Museum's Sphinx is made of? Handsome red granite canopic jars, each featuring one of four protective deities, hail from Egypt and come in two sizes: decorative ($24.99 each); or as a larger, complete set of four ($299.99).
Animals figure prominently in ancient Egypt, and the shop has a variety of resin statues of the popular cat goddess Bastet, as well as Hippos, and scarabs.
New in the shop, there are elegant Egyptian alabaster plates, vases, and votive candle-holders ($12.99 to $34.99), worthy of a Pharaoh, and a Sphinx!
