Last week, the Office of the Hungarian Cultural Counsellor, Balassi Institute, in Cairo hosted the archaeologist, Professor Fikry Hassan, who talked about the rock art of Gilf al-Kebir. The Gilf is a cave area in Egypt’s Western Desert, on the corner of the Egyptian Sudanese Libyan border. The caves, which were discovered at the outset of the last century, are home to some stunning prehistoric rock art.
The Balassi event witnessed the inauguration of a small exhibition of Professor Hassan’s delicate artworks which were created on site.
