Golden Sun Disk
The Mataha-expedition team wants to thank all people who funded the project with the acquisition of a Golden Sun Disk for the encouraging support. Gratefulness to art curator Andree van de Kerckhove for the organisation of the labyrinth exhibition (Tabularium #05 CBK Delft), and the production of the first Golden Sun Disk.
Gratitude to Prof. Dr. Willy Clarysse & Dr. Inge Uyterhoeven (archaeologist), the team-leaders of the "Hawara 2000 surface survey” for their interest, practical information and help in the research of the Hawara history.
Association Egyptologique Reine Elisabeth
Many thanks to the AERE Board of directors for their human network support. The Association Egyptologique Reine Elisabeth was founded in memory of the Belgian Queen Elisabeth's visit to the tomb of Tutankhamun, on February 18, 1923. Its main purpose was to stimulate egyptological and papyrological research in Belgium. Over the years the association has become a scholarly institution, which promotes the study of the history and civilisation of Pharaonic, Graeco-Roman and Christian Egypt.
Many thanks for the encouraging UNESCO presence on the workshop in Cairo, and hopefully the future support of Hawara. The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization seeks to encourage the identification, protection and preservation of cultural and natural heritage around the world considered to be of outstanding value to humanity. This is embodied in an international treaty called the Convention concerning the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage.
Many thanks to Peter Cooreman and Ilse Adam of the Isel foundation for the personal support. The Isel Foundation is a private foundation situated in Merelbeke, Belgium. The foundation publishes its own Isel magazine, but is in the first place a cultural platform where artists, cultural organisations and companies meet and are promoted. The foundation supported the Mataha-project by organizing several Labyrinth lectures, bringing the right people together to start the project’s realization.
