The Museum of Fine Arts in Houston is proud to host the acclaimed traveling Tutankhamun: The Golden King and the Great Pharaohs. This fascinating exhibit features more than 100 artworks, most of the artworks have never been shown in the United States prior to this tour. The treasures include the golden sandals found on the boy kings mummy; a gold coffinette that held his stomach; golden statues of the gods; and King Tut's rings, ear ornaments, and gold collar.
Showcased at the exhibit are objects associated with the most important and influential rulers of the 30 dynasties that reigned in Egypt over a 2,000-year span. The exhibition explores the splendor of the pharaohs, their function in both the earthly and divine worlds, and what "kingship" meant to the Egyptian people. Among the highlights is the largest likeness of King Tut ever discovered: a 10-foot statue of the pharaoh found at the remains of a funerary temple
This exhibition is organized by National Geographic, Arts & Exhibitions International and AEG Exhibitions with cooperation from Egypt’s Supreme Council of Antiquities.
