Art and iconography of ancient Egyptian textiles. Coauthor Abigaëlle Richard for: "Coptic textiles of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts"

In 2007-2008, I had the opportunity, as a doctorate researcher, to do an internship at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA), as assistant curator for Dr. John M. Fossey curator of the “Archaeology and World Cultures” collection now "Arts Of One World".

During this internship, I participated in the research and iconographical analysis of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts' (MMFA) collection of Egyptian Coptic textiles, in order to produce a catalogue in collaboration with Dr. Wendy Landry and Anne-Laure Rameau, Dr. Beaudoin Caron and Dr. John M. Fossey.

Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, Collection of Mediterranean Antiquities, Vol. 4: The Coptic Textile series:

Monumenta Graeca et Romana, Volume: 24

This catalogue of the Coptic Textiles in the Collection of Mediterranean Antiquities at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts provides a detailed analysis of 64 textiles from both historical and weaving practice points of view. This approach provides a fuller understanding of the cultural situation in which such textiles were produced and circulated. Dr. Landry’s experience of over 40 years of weaving and scholarship highlights the elements of knowledge and skill held and applied by weavers in Antiquity. This perspective complements and expands on the focus on imagery usually provided by art historians regarding textiles of this period. This catalogue shows how much more cultural information can be accessed when the technical, economic, and practical character of both production and use are adequately integrated into the study of material artefacts.

Who is Mokusho Abigaëlle Richard?

As a starseed soul, intuitive artist, iconographer, transmitter, collage artist and travel photographer, my soul purpose is to share my higher self connection and spiritual intuitive guidance in the form of a reading or Creative Intuitive Transmission with meaning (iconography), high vibration words and artwork as an original art collage of Japanese art style washi chiyogami paper (normally used for origami). It also takes the form of color and black and white photo digital files of travel, nature, landscape, animal, urban, architecture and b&w photography. Both are for sale as wall art in my art shop and their creative process and inspiration is discussed in blog posts on this website. They are also shared as videography on “The grounded starseed” Youtube channel, to offer you high frequency art.
