Ten years in the making, from the artisans of the Pharaonic Village in Egypt, The Field Museum, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, this dazzling collection of re-productions of Tutankhamun’s legendary treasures recreates the richest archeological find of all time.
Accompanied by a lively text, 126 replicas of the pharaoh’s sacred and personal possessions (including his magnificent stale 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.
