Photographer's Note

A scene from the Tutankhamen exhibit in the old Cairo Archeology Museum. The entire museum content was moved to Giza, and was set to be completed and opened by April 2020, but because of Covid-19, that date has been postponed until April this year. It appears the young Pharaoh is leading an attack on the Nubians from Sudan, to the south of Egypt, along with some rather savage dogs. I have repaired a few scratches and blemishes in photoshop. Shot through glass. The Tomb of King Tut is actually in the Valley of the Kings near Luxor, and some visitors go looking for the mummy of this king within this Cairo museum, which does feature the mummified remains of many other Pharaohs, but are disappointed to find that he isn't here. I saw both. No photos allowed at his tomb in Valley of the Kings, as well! I think this is a painted wooden box. I am not sure what was inside it. Here's the whole box:

And here's what it contained (I was curious so went looking) "The chest was used as when discovered it contained the precious and personal items of Tutankhamun."

It contained:
1- A pair of papyrus sandals
2- 3 pairs of gilded sandals.
3- One gilded headrest.
4- Necklaces.
5- Labels.
6- Embroidered ceremonial robes belonging to the king, one of them was studded with over 3000 golden rosettes.
