Death Mask of Tutankhamen Death Mask of Tutankhamen from innermost coffin; Sculpture (gold with inlaid semi-precious stones). Egypt, 18th Dynasty. Site: Thebes, Tomb of Tutankhamen. Period Date: 1570-1314 BCE. Object Date: c. 1325 BCE. This mask of solid gold, beaten and burnished, was placed over the head and shoulders of Tutankhamun's mummy, outside the linen bandages in which the whole body was wrapped. It weighs about twenty - four pounds. Although it is difficult to judge how closely the face represents a true likeness of the king, it is at least an approximation. The rather narrow eyes, the shape of the nose, the fleshy lips, and the cast of the chin are all in agreement with the features visible in his mummy, and the whole countenance is unmistakably youthful. Perhaps it is slightly idealized, but essentially it seems to be a faithful portrait.

Death Mask of Tutankhamen Image Death Mask of Tutankhamen from innermost coffin; Sculpture (gold with inlaid semi-precious stones). Egypt, 18th Dynasty. Site: Thebes, Tomb of Tutankhamen. Period Date: 1570-1314 BCE. Object Date: c. 1325 BCE. The death mask really is magnificent even to someone with no knowledge of the finer points of Egyptian antiquities. Made of solid gold and inlaid with semi-precious stones, it weighs 11 kilograms. At the top you can see representations of a vulture and a cobra. You'll often see the latter referred to as a "uraeus", which is the Latinised form of the Greek word for "cobra"! Wallpaper images are available.

EGYPT - Abu Simbel Tour Egypt: Perhaps after the Giza pyramids, or coincident with them, the great temple of Abu Simbel presents the most familiar image of ancient Egypt to the modern traveler and reader. When the conservation efforts to preserve the temple from the soon-to be built High Aswan Dam and its rising waters were begun in the 1960s, images of the colossal statues filled newspapers and books. The temples were dismantled and relocated in 1968 on the desert plateau, 200 feet above and 600 feet west of their original location. Abu Simbel lies south of Aswan on the western bank of the Nile, 180 miles south of the First Cataract in what was Nubia. The site was known as Meha in ancient times and was first documented in the 18th Dynasty, when Ay and Horemheb had rock-cut chapels hewn in the hills to the south.

Guardian's Giza - The Great Pyramid The Great Pyramid The Pyramid of Khufu See a plan of the interior READ about the pyramid. After the Great Pyramid was initially sealed, it's original entrance was hidden and faced with smooth limestone. Because this blended in so well with the surrounding casing, the opening was invisible. Around 820 AD, Abdullah Al Mamun mobilized men to bore a tunnel into the pyramid to search for chambers and treasure. Due to the difficulty of the task of breaking up the hard rock, fires were built to heat the rock and then cold vinegar was poured over the heated rock. Battering rams were used to pound away the weakened rock and clear a tunnel. Eventually, a passageway was found which descended into the lowest chamber of the pyramid. Following this passageway back upward, the original entrance was finally located. In these pictures of the NORTH side you can see the intrusive entrance lower down, and the original entrance higher up flanked by angled stones [images] [Egypt]

King Menkaure and Kha-mere-nebty II Detailed Egypt (Old Kingdom): King Menkaure (Mycerinus) and his Queen, Kha-mere-nebty II, Detail: ca. 2548-2530 B.C. Menkaure is portrayed in the familiar Egyptian pose standing as if at attention with his left leg extended forward, his arms held stiff at his sides, and his fists clenched holding some unidentified cylindrical objects. His stance appears assertive, indicative of his power. He is represented as a mature yet vigorous man, perhaps in his thirties, with slender hips, broad shoulders, and well-developed arms. His body has been made to appear lifelike and, except, as is common to all Egyptian statues, in such areas as the knees, which are over-emphasized, and the edge of the shin-bone, which is too sharp, is anatomically correct. Overall, he appears to represent the ideal of manly beauty in Old Kingdom Egypt. Menkaure's face also appears to have been idealized, though its features, which are not particularly refined or aristocratic looking, have been particularized to the degree that it strikes us as being a portrait. Projecting from his chin is a short transversely striped, squared-off, wedge-shaped ceremonial beard. On his head he wears a nemes, or headdress, the sides of which are pulled back behind his rather large ears, with the lappets falling to either side of his chest. The beard and the headdress are the primary symbols of his pharaonic status. Besides the headdress, the only other article of clothing he wears is a shendjyt kilt which is folded across the front, with one end falling down beneath, and held in place with a belt round his waist.

Mummies of the World A mummy, to put it bluntly, is an old dead body. But unlike a skeleton or a fossil, a mummy still retains some of the soft tissue it had when it was alive -- most often skin, but sometimes organs and muscles, as well. This tissue preservation can happen by accident or through human intervention but, in either case, it occurs when bacteria and fungi are unable to grow on a corpse and cause its decay.

Napoleon`s Conquest of Egypt (1798-1800) did not last more than two years. Yet its` consequences to the area were spectacular. This latest museum in the Pharaonic Village attempts to capture this. It highlights some of the main historic events, including: The Battle of the Pyramids: This is the battle where Napoleon and his army defeated the Mamelukes - warlords of Egypt. The battle was fought at Imbaba, 13 miles north of the pyramids. [Ancient Egypt] [Images]

Queen Nefertiti (R. profile view) Egypt (New Kingdom): Queen Nefertiti: (R. profile view), ca. 1350 B.C. [Dynasty XVIII] Nefertiti was the wife of the Egyptian Pharaoh Amenhotep IV (later Akhenaten), and mother-in-law of the Pharaoh Tutankhamun. Her name roughly translates to "the beautiful one is come". She also shares her name with a type of elongated gold bead that she was often portrayed as wearing, known as "nefer" beads. Famed throughout the ancient world for her outstanding beauty, Nefertiti remains the one of the most well known Queen of Egypt. Though Akhenaten had several wives, Queen Nefertiti was his chief wife.

The Giza Plateau. "From atop these pyramids, forty centuries look down upon you." -- Napoleon Bonaparte to his soldiers before the Battle of Giza, 1798 When Khufu, perhaps better known by his Greek name, Cheops, became king of Egypt after the death of Sneferu, there was no convenient space remaining at Dahshur, where Sneferu was buried, for Khufu's own pyramid complex. Hence, he moved his court and residence farther north, where his prospectors had located a commanding rock cliff, overlooking present day Giza, appropriate for a towering pyramid. This rock cliff was in the northernmost part of the first Lower Egyptian nome, Ineb-hedj ("the white fortress"). Giza is located only a few kilometers south of Cairo, several hundred meters from the last houses in the southernmost part of the city proper, where a limestone cliff rises abruptly from the other side of a sandy desert plateau. The ancient Egyptians called this place imentet, "The West" or kher neter, "the necropolis". [images] [Archaeology]

The Sphinx The Sphinx of Giza is a symbol that has represented the essence of Egypt for thousands of years. Even with all of the pictures that we see of the Sphinx, nothing can really prepare you for the time that you finally see the Sphinx with your own eyes. Here's a look at the Sphinx that will give you a hint of what you can expect to see if you visit Egypt. [images] [Archaeology]

Three slaves and a stern Ramses II Egypt's king, Ramses II, written about in the Old Testament, is now thought to have reigned between 1290-1224 B.C.E. The Egyptian wall art to the right depicts Ramses holding what is suspected to be three slaves. One is black, one appears to be East Asian, and the third, in the foreground, appears to be Semitic. The blacks and Semite came from close by. The East Asian leaves us wondering. (Photo)

Tourist photographing statue of Ramesses II Luxor, Karnak Temple, Ramses II statue We are now in the temple area. The temple of Karnak should be called the temples of Karnak, because in this area you will find several temples. The three main ones are: the temple of mut, the temple of Monthu and the temple of Amun (the three of them are enclosed by high walls). Outside the walls there is the open air museum, the sacred lake and several other temples. In front of us you can admire the statue of Ramses II. At its left, you can see part of the second pylon, built during Ramses II reign. At our right there is the entrance to the hypostyle hall, one of the most amazing sights in Egypt, which we will see later. Now it is time to go to the Ramses III courtyard (at our back).
