Striking Power guides the reader through the political and religious quagmire of the first exhibit of Egyptian iconoclasm.  It introduces to us the reasons these images of the Pharaohs Hatshepsut and Akhenaten and various extraordinary objects from Late Antiquity were damaged.  We learn that the representations in the exhibit are not just beautiful icons but rather a home for spiritual energy and power.  Striking Power strikes up questions on why these treasures were broken and gives the reader an insight of the pull of political and religious power in Ancient Egypt.
