King Tutankhamun Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh

Sunday 22nd March 2020 - Saatchi Gallery

The largest number of King Tutankhamun treasures ever to leave Egypt will be in London for an exhibition which organisers say will never happen again. It will have 150 original artefacts from Tutankhamun’s tomb, 60 of which have never left Egypt before. The objects will include a gold inlaid miniature coffin which contained the king’s liver after it was removed during the mummification process, a gilded wooden bed with carved lion feet probably made specially for Tutankhamun’s funeral and a gilded wooden shrine showing intimate scenes of royal domestic harmony. One of two life-sized guardian statues of the king, which flanked the sealed entrance to his burial chamber, will also be among the artefacts leaving Cairo for the first time.

Note the initial batch of tickets has been sold out for this trip but we may be able to get some more. If you would like to book please contact Gary Harding via the Carrier Pigeon or see their website http://www.radlett-art-society.co.uk
