Ancient Egypt will forever capture the imagination of the modern world. Everything about the culture, religions and grandeur of the civilisation seems to foreign, yet so beautiful. As children, we learn about the realities of the mummification process and are sometimes lucky to see caskets and remains in museums. As adults, we are drawn the beauty of the artwork the hieroglyphics and religious deities. One name still holds significantly more weight than that of any other pharaoh or Egyptian figure. That name is none other than Tutankhamun.
The new King Tut: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh exhibition takes place at the Grande Halle de la Villette in Paris. This show is a collaboration between the gallery and the Egyptian Supreme Council of Antiquities and brings 150 items from his tomb to the French public.
This is a must-see show for ancient history fans. You can do so between March 23rd and September 15th.
