If you are in NYC area or planning on visiting this is one exhibition that shouldn't be missed!
“Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs” opens today at the Discovery Times Square Exposition, marking the first time a collection of treasures from the young pharaoh’s tomb has visited the city since the groundbreaking 1979 exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. That exhibition triggered renewed interest in Egyptology and influenced fashion trends in a similar way that it did in 1922 when Tut’s tomb was unearthed.
Organized by National Geographic, Arts and Exhibitions International and AEG Exhibitions, “Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs” contains more than twice the number of artifacts shown previously, with more than 130 rare objects that provide a glimpse into the life royal in the 18th dynasty of ancient Egypt.
Tutankhamun’s remarkable treasures, from cosmetic contains to necklaces and other everyday objects to fine works of art, illustrate what life was like for Tutankhamum and the people of Egypt,” says exhibition curator Dr. David Silverman, an Egyptology professor and curator-in-charge of the Egyptian section at the University of Pennsylvania Museum.
The exhibition continues through Jan. 2, 2011 with ticket prices ranging from $17.50 to $29.50. www.kingtutnyc.com
