Ike and Sara went to the Saatchi Gallery in London to see the touring exhibition of “Tutankhamun: The Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh”. This exhibition closed early due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and a return to London has been ruled out. Therefore, we are fortunate that Sara and Ike managed to go and that they have shared their photographs with us. The exhibition comprised of 150 artefacts from the tomb of King Tutankhamun and was intended to be a celebration of the one hundred year anniversary of the opening of the tomb in 1922 by Howard Carter. Prior to London the exhibition was shown in Los Angeles and Paris; it was meant to move onto Boston and then Sydney, but has returned to Egypt instead. The exhibits will join other artefacts from Tutankhamun’s tomb in the new Grand Egyptian Museum, located in Giza and set to open in 2021.
Another exhibit featured works of art by Kate Daudy, inspired by Tutankhamun’s treasures:
