TUTANKHAMUN: “Wonderful Things” From The Pharaoh’s Tomb

Presented by: International Museum Institute, Inc.

Available in CANADA for the first time to a whole generation, this dazzling collection of reproductions of Tutankhamun’s legendary treasures recreates the richest archaeological find of all time.  124 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) 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.  Along with the magic of the sacred objects, and the infamous curse of Tutankhamun, this classic exhibition vividly brings to life the enigmatic opulent age of 18th Dynasty Egypt.
