Did anyone else see that article talking about King tut’s golden mask being destroyed?? May sound dramatic, but that’s how it feels to me. I cannot even wrap around my head just how messed up this whole situation has come about. Not going through proper procedure to have this braided beard reattached… not only did they use an epoxy glue which you can clearly see by the gap that now exists between the beard and chin, but the scratched markings from trying to do who knows what! It crushes me that such a historical piece of art would be treated so carelessly by the museums own employees! I’ll link an article that can better word what has occurred because I know I’m way too bias on this topic to speak about it without getting angry.
Anyways, I’ll continue with more images of the Exhibit now. Enjoy!
Just so I feel a little better about these images, I think I’ll blame the spotlights over the artifacts for the reason why my pictures aren’t as focused as they should be.
Fun Fact: Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs have no vowels in their alphabet, so when your reading or writing their scripture there is a lot of freedom in terms of how hieroglyphs can sound phonetically because it’s a personal choice of which vowel one may feel comfortable using.
