Here is a selection of photos I took while visiting the exhibition Tutankhamun: His Tomb and Treasures in Brussels back in June 2011.
All of the items shown below are replicas of the grave goods and coffins that Howard Carter and his team found in tomb KV62 in November 1922. Over 1,000 replicas were crafted by some of Egypt’s finest craftsmen who used traditional techniques to recreate many of the young king’s treasures. One of the replicas on display is the Anubis shrine that I wrote about earlier this month.
The exhibition is still touring Europe so you might be lucky enough to see it in your home town or country! The dates and venues listed below were correct at the time of publication.
