18th Century Egyptian-inspired room found

Hieroglyphs and representations of Egyptian gods and goddesses have been found in the middle of the Po valley in northern Italy.

They were found Found in Casalbuttano ed Uniti, a village 10 miles north of Cremona. The Egyptian-inspired motifs were found as restorers removed the tapestry in a room of Palazzo Turina, an 18th century building which now houses the town hall.

Painted with stunning trompe l'oeil effects to produce the illusion of real statues, depictions of Egyptian god and goddesses emerged at the room corners.
