During the twenty-sixth dynasty, artists looked increasingly toward earlier periods of Egyptian art, combining old elements into new creations and gracing their works with sensitive modeling and brilliant surface treatments. Hard stones were preferred. The conquest of Egypt by the Persian king Kambyses in 525 B.C. did not interrupt a fundamental artistic continuity that lasted into the fourth century B.C. and is well represented in this gallery by the Museum's delightful collection of amulets.
