Wonderful Things from the Pharaoh’s Tomb
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 Archeological discover
- 3.) The private pharaoh
- 4). The public pharaoh and
- 5.) The royal burial
The artifacts are elegantly displayed on pedestals of simulated Egyptian granite. 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.
