Artist hailed as Egypt's Michelangelo

An unknown Egyptian artist has had his skill revealed during a long conservation project by the British Museum.

Painted for the tomb of Nebamun, who was an accountant around 1350 BC, the wall paintings are being hailed as masterpieces.

New Scientist has an article and a photo gallery. The restored fragments go on display this week at the British Museum.
