That's really a hard call!
There are so many wonderful, beautiful pieces that we have now.

I think one of my favorites is the delicate jewelry that was found in the Il Lahun pyramid that belonged to the three princess originally buried there.

Some of the art work is really impressive, especially the triad of Menkhaure, showing him with Hathor and one of the personifications of a nome. (I forget which!)

The disputed statue, either of Akhenaten or Semenenkhara is a great piece, too. I'm sure you're familiar with it. About 2 ft tall, and an ivory color with fantastic detail work.

As I say, there are so many! Picking out one is impossible.

the narmer palette, so much iconography from the funny set creature, a pyramid, long necked beasts, mesopotamian royal rosettes & most of all, the sandal bearer carrying a hem vessel
