The wheel of life is depicted in this 19th-century Tibetan Buddhist thangka. A thangka is used for teaching or as a devotional object and this one shows the world in the arms of the demon Mara, who is associated with temptation, death and impermanence. The three segments at the top of the wheel show the higher realms of existence, and the bottom three show the sufferings of animals, ghosts and hell. See this colourful painted textile in our #LivingWithTheGods exhibition, exploring beliefs from around the world and through time – find out more and book tickets: Listen to Neil MacGregor talk about this object in the final episode of our partnership BBC Radio 4 series here:

In addition to his military goals, Napoleon used the campaign to mount the first large-scale scientific expedition related to the study of both ancient and modern Egypt. He intended to document antiquities, ethnography, architecture, and natural history, taking with him 150 artists, scientists, architects, and printers who compiled a monumental record of the campaign.
