Tutankamón: La tumba, el oro y la maldición

  • through July 29, 2019
  • Centro Cultural Paso del Norte-Sala de Usos Multiples, Juárez, Chihuahua, Mexico
This exhibition, translated as "Tutankhamun: the tomb, the gold and the curse," is a majestic sample with more than 200 pieces that recreate the tomb of the pharaoh and his treasures. Among the pieces are gold-plated objects, wooden sarcophagi of five meters and a faithful copy in granite, as well as small Ushabti statures, figures of the time that were placed in tombs, reconstructed by Italian artists and craftsmen. The exhibition presents an era of Egyptian splendor, revealing the process of embalming and the formation of an exploration team that embarked on one of the most important discoveries of the 20th century, through dioramas and a production of audiovisuals that surround the story and the legend of the pharaoh of the XVIII Dynasty.
