TUTANKHAMUN "Wonderful Things" From The Pharaohs Tomb

Description: TUTANKHAMUN "Wonderful Things" From The Pharaoh's Tomb Ten years in the making, from the artisans of the Pharaonic Village in Egypt, this dazzling collection of reproductions of Tutankhamun's legendary treasures recreates the richest archaeological find of all time.Accompanied by a lively text, 126 replicas of the pharaoh's sacred and personal possessions (including his magnificent state chariot, golden shrines, beds, thrones, jewelry, spectacular funerary mask, mummy case, and royal mummy) along with associated artifacts from the period surrounding Tutankhamun's reign reconstruct both the historic discovery of the tomb by Howard Carter and the life and times of Egypt's celebrated boy king.An innocent puppet-ruler, Tutankhamun was caught in the midst of a dangerous and profound political, spiritual, and artistic revolution against the entire pantheon of ancient Egyptian gods by the first monotheistic religious cult in history. The pharaoh's much overlooked African heritage is explored, along with the religious magic of the sacred objects, and the infamous curse of Tutankhamun.The exhibition is presented in 5 chambers, 1.) An introduction to Ancient Egypt, 2.) The archaeological discovery, 3.) The private pharaoh, 4). The public pharaoh and, 5.) The royal burial. The artifacts are elegantly displayed on pedestals of simulated Egyptian granite, a soundtrack of ambient music is also provided, especially composed to evoke the timeless mystery of the ancient tomb. Available in America for the first time to a whole generation, this classic exhibition vividly brings to life the enigmatic opulent age of 18th Dynasty Egypt.
