I am looking at the Geneva lake - it could not be seen but the Alps behind it showed better than here on the photo.
We spent a weekend with our son and family in Geneva and were invited to visit the exquisit exhibition of Tutankhamon - about the excavation of his tomb and treasures in 1922 - in more than a thousand perfectly crafted replicas. We were told that Egyptian crafters created those artful objects as replicas
|The mask of Tutankhamon|
The mask was lying over the head of the Pharaon when Howard Carter discovered the tomb
in the Valley of the Kings in Egypt in 1922
|The last but one shrine|
The last but one sarkophagus was made of plaster and covered with a guild layer
Tutankhamon was buried in here.
I opened up the brochure so on the left side you can see the last shrine from above.
In the middle of the photo can be seen many grave furnishings - as found - untouched since 3300 years.
Many of them have been savely stored in shrines
|The foot part of his bed|
Two lions were watching his sleep at his feet
Goddesses in front of a shrine
His throne in pure gold but here a replica
A chariot - his way to travel - (oh, I suppose so)
I liked this statue very much - (about 8" - 9" large)
I you like to see more just copy the link. The same exhibition will take place in Nuernberg in Germany.
Take a deep breath -
This is our culture:
Cheese as much as you can think of
Many kinds of onions
And it was turkey-time also in Switzerland.
We are just starting to enjoy our meal - from top DIL - me - grandson - son
And now we are again renovating in France - "we" - I should better tell the truth "he", the one who is missing on the photo.
So much for today
