All that glitters IS ACTUALLY GOLD!
Since my teens, I have been fascinated by all things Egyptian. Probably near the top of my bucket list, is a trip to Egypt to see the Valley of Kings, the Pyramids of Giza, Abu Simbel etc. That would be a dream come true. Until then, this is the closest I will get!
The Exhibition had around 150 artefacts on show and billed as the last tour of these items to leave Egypt as there is currently a new Museum being built in Cairo to house all the items removed from the tomb by Howard Carter in the 1920s.
All the items were exquisitely crafted in such minute detail - truly amazing to see. Here are a few of my photos of my favourite pieces from the exhibition:
Breathtaking artefacts - some huge and some very tiny, all beautiful.
You can see the rest of my photos here.
We were very lucky to see the exhibition, as shortly after our visit, it was closed due to the Coronavirus Pandemic.
My only disappointment was that the famous Funerary Mask was not there, just means I will have to visit the new museum in the future!
Alan bought me the STUNNING official Exhibit Book:
