King Tut Treasures Replicas The tomb of King Tutankhamun and all its marvelous treasures have captured the imaginations of people around the world since its discovery by British explorer Howard Carter one hundred years ago in 1922. The tomb’s chambers were filled from floor to ceiling with approximately five thousand unique artifacts including clothing, furniture, weaponry and even chariots! Items from King Tut’s tomb have been touring around the world and being showcased at several museums. However, today the most precious and fragile artifacts, most notably the infamous burial mask remain in Egypt. The golden funerary mask has been on display at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo but with the opening of the Grand Egyptian Museum, the Tutankhamun collection will be housed there. The discovery of King Tut’s tomb is one of the most significant scientific and historical discoveries of the 20th century. This is due to the fact that King Tut’s mummy was found completely intact, perfectly preserved thanks to the elaborate mummification process. The mummy was found adorned with jewelry, crowns and walking sticks made out of solid gold and high-quality, imported wood that stood the test of time. The variety of items found in the tomb offered invaluable insight into the funerary, burial and religious beliefs of ancient Egypt. Over 5000 marvelous treasures of dazzling gold, jewels and the highest-quality materials available in antiquity were placed in the king’s tomb to assist him in the afterlife. The walls of the tomb are immaculately painted with detailed scenes of the voyage through the underworld and into the afterlife. The chamber contained four gilded shrines. Inside of these shrines was a beautiful sarcophagus adorned with red quarts. Inside of the sarcophagus were three nesting coffins, with the last coffin containing king Tutankhamun’s mummy. His body was wrapped in linen and his face covered by the infamous gold mask. With the discovery of the tomb, the archaeologists unearthed what has now become arguably the most iconic mask in the world. The mask accurately captures Tutankhamun’s facial features on two sheets of solid gold. The mask weighs a whopping 22 pounds! The expression on the mask is despondent yet peaceful. The mask is adorned with glass paste resembling the brilliant color of lapis lazuli as well as colored glass and other semi-precious stones. It is decorated with a vulture and cobra (representing the protection of the goddesses Wadjet and Nekhbet) on the forehead and falcon heads on the shoulders. These emblems are representative of Upper and Lower Egypt. The eyes are made from obsidian and quartz and outlines with semi-precious lapis lazuli.
