Pictures of Egypt's revolution

Egypt’s uprising against Hosni Mubarak’s has now been documented in an art exhibition at the Pharaonic Village in Cairo.

A fitting venue perhaps given that the country’s former leader was often referred to as ‘Egypt’s last Pharaoh’.

The exhibition includes photos, paintings and drawings of the protests in January last year. It began last week and runs until the end of February.

The Pharaonic Village is hoping the collection of nearly 100 images will bring in more visitors through its doors.

It has been hit like the rest of Egypt’s tourist industry by the sharp drop in business since last year’s revolution.

Our correspondent in Cairo Mustafa Bag said the works of art were just another way Egyptians are celebrating the ouster of their former leader Mubarak.
