TUTANKHAMUN - Golden King & Great Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt

The identity of modern Egypt is inextricably entwined with its glorious past. More than just Egypt, all humanity identifies with ancient Egypt’s monumental significance for its role in the history of human progress; we can almost feel Egypt in our souls while wandering among their antiquities.
The discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun in 1922 by Howard Carter containing much splendor and magnificence from ancient Egypt has mesmerized  the world. Since the first world tour in the early 1960s, ‘Tutankhamun’s Treasures’ and every exhibit afterward has kept millions around the world waiting in winding queues for hours to have a glimpse of the artifacts of the golden king and treasures of ancient Egypt.
We are drawn to stand in the presence of the essence of King Tut himself and for a few moments to gaze upon his stunning majesty, his golden face, and the beautiful artifacts provided for his journey into the hereafter. People’s interest in all things Egypt never wanes. Tutankhamun has indeed become the Golden King as was envisioned more than 5000 years ago. Embodied into the golden funerary or death mask to travel into the hereafter, and here along the way. Prepared for eternity, timeless beyond today, Tutankhamun will indeed live forever.
Like a celebrity attending his own exhibitions he is arguably the most famous artifact in the world and one of the most loved. Tutankhamun as his golden self, brings a much desired personal appearance and delivers the greatest satisfaction when attending any exhibition to experience Egyptian antiquities. While the sought after golden mask has been deemed too fragile to ever leave Egypt again, it is always an iconic symbol representing the magnificence of ancient Egypt.


A Fine art portrait of Tutankhamun's golden death mask

In 1979, an exquisite artwork pen & ink portrait of King Tutankhamun's golden death mask was reverently created  by an artist with
a passionate dedication to detail  and as one who had also become enamoured with King Tut. The artist was mesmerized by the beauty, craftsmanship and artistry of the incomparable funerary mask that King Tut wore in his tomb.The fine art work became included into a design to brand a 1979 'Treasures of Tutankhamun ' exhibit event honoring him in 1979 as a limited edition (150 copies) print with menu covers and booklets. The 1979 high profile event was a 17 day Egyptian Food Festival  celebration  extravaganza of the 'Treasures of Tutankhamun" at Toronto's most luxurious hotel. An extravaganza, it was aligned with the King Tut 61 day Treasures of Tutankhamun" exhibition. As such, only a very limited number (150) were created in 1979, and none were available to the public. Every single copy was reserved by request beyond use at the event, with many 'going missing.'  Beautifully detailed, even the typographical elements and logos were created by hand and silkscreen printed onto looks-like-gold foil metalicized paper. It delivered a visual experience for the truest reminiscence of the incomparable golden mask. This portrait of King Tut is a beautiful art object that a monitor or digital screen simply fails to convey and cannot represent the detail.


Commemorative prints - Fine art Prints

Thirty years later, it will be the very same artist, designer and printer who make this beautiful artwork available today for those who want an authentic fine art quality representation of Tutankhamun in his Golden Death Mask. Singularly unique from all other Tutankhamun image objects, it is fine art and heirloom quality 'object d' art' that will last forever. A timeless artwork and authentic collectible making it a perfect, memorabilia  or keepsake.

This fine art portrait of the golden death mask of Tutankhamun is silkscreen printed onto looks-likes-gold foil s, (sized 18"x 24") then individually rolled into a black glossy tube (2”DIAM x 19.75”) with a matching gold foil label and white endcaps. Each print is protected during transport, in museum store displays and fits easily into any travelers suitcase in this way. The foil and screen inks do not degrade. A print from 1979 looks exactly the same today as in 1979. (Note - It is not lithography as foil does not accept lithographic inks.) .

Timeless design - Portrait of the Golden King and his name in 27 languages

The 'Portrait of the Tutankhamun Golden Death Mask is included into a timeless design of global appeal simply stating the name of Tutankhamun

Tut Facts
His original name, Tutankhaten, means "Living Image of Aten", while Tutankhamun means "Living Image of Amun."
In hieroglyphs the name Tutankhamun was typically written  Amen-tut-ank.
King Tutankhamun (Egyptian twt-ˁnḫ-ı͗mn, approx. [təwaːt ʕaːnəx ʔaˈmaːn];) or • الفرعون توت عنخ آمون
he sometimes also known or spelled as Tutankhamen • Tutankhamon• Tutenkhamen • Tutenkhamon •
Tutanhamon * Tutanhamen • Tutanhamun • ツタンカーメン • Tutanchamun • Tutankamon • Toetanchamon •
Tutanchamonas • Tutankamón Тутанхамона • Toetankamen • 圖坦卡蒙 • Тутанкамон • ןומאךנאתות  • 투탕카문
Touatânkhamano • Τουταγχαμων • Toutankhamon • Тутанхамон and King Tut.

He may also have been Nibhurrereya of the Amarna letters.
Pharaohs names were distinct from others and where inscribed
and enclosed in a cartouche. Egyptologists or those who are interested in  Egyptology, Egyptian art and Egyptian artifacts
and antiquities, studies of Egypt, Archeology, hieroglyphs, alphabets, language symbols may also use the name of:
• Praenomen name: Nebkheperure Tutankhamun 𓇓𓆤 𓍹𓇳𓆣𓏥𓎟𓍺   (meaning - Lord of the forms of Re).
• Horus name: 𓅃𓃒𓂡𓏏𓅱𓏏𓄟𓋴𓏏𓅱𓏪𓊁 (meaning the able bull, adorable of birth)
• Nebti name: 𓅒𓄤𓉔𓊪𓅱𓇩𓏪𓋴𓎼𓂋𓎛𓂝𓇿𓇿𓈅𓈅𓅨𓉥𓉐𓏤𓇋𓏠 [nnb] 𓂋𓇥𓂋𓀯  
One of absolute laws, who pacifies the two lands; Great of the alcazar of Amun; Ruler of all)
• Golden Horus name: 𓅉𓍞𓈍𓏥𓊃𓊵𓏏𓊪𓊹�𓊹𓊹𓊹𓋾𓈎𓏛𓁦𓋴𓊵𓏏𓊪𓊹𓊹𓊹𓅱𓍿𓊃𓍞𓈍𓏥𓇋𓏏𓆑𓀯𓆑𓁛𓍞𓈍𓏥𓋭𓊃𓇾𓇾𓅓
(Who wears crowns and pleases the gods; Adjudicator of Truth, who pleases the gods;
Who wears the crowns of his father, Re; Who wears crowns, and binds the two acreage therein)
• Son of Re: 𓅭𓇳 𓍹𓇋𓏠𓈖𓏏𓅱𓏏𓋹𓋾𓉺𓇗𓍺 Tutankhamun Hekaiunushema
(Living Image of Amun, Ruler of Upper Heliopolis)

The most famous of Egyptian pharaohs, he lived 18 or 19 years (1341 BC – 1323 BC). A boy king at nine years old he ruled
1333 BC – 1323 BC during the Eighteenth Dynasty (1550-1292 BC), which was a period of Egyptian history known as the
New Kingdom. His tomb (KV62) was the most complete ancient Egyptian royal tomb ever found. It was discovered in the Valley
of the Kings (KV62) by British Egyptologist Howard Carter (employed by Lord Carnarvon) on November 4, 1922 underneath
the remains of workmen's huts built during the Ramesses II period. The tomb was densely packed with a wealth of riches in great disarray, with 5398 separate items that took 10 years to be be meticulously recorded.
It revealed the most magnificent treasures;
the most famous of which was the gold funerary, or death mask (JE-60672) made of solid gold, inlaid with lapis lazuli, carnelian, quartz, obsidian weighing 24 lbs and is 54cm tall. This mask was deemed to fragile to travel and will never leave Egypt again.

King Tut's family is being identified by DNA. Egyptian royals were often incestuous. These DNA tests confirm that Akhenaten
(Amenhotep IV) (KV55) was Tutankhamun's father. His mother was revealed by DNA tests and was found in grave (KV35)
with an elder woman confirmed as Queen Tiye, but his mother's name is not yet known). He was the grandson of Pharaoh
Amenhotep III and Queen Tiye. The name of king, Tutankhaten, means living image of Aten.The name was later changed to
Tutankhamen (means living image of Amun, giving due reverence to the old god Amun. After he became king he married his own
sister Ankhesenepatan, as discovered by Zahi Hawass - (Secretary General of the Egyptian Supreme Council  of Antiquities)
where he had recovered an artifact which proclaimed the pair, "children of the the King's body "(Akhenaten). She later changed
her name to Ankhesenamun. She and King Tut had two non-surviving female offspring.
Royal Family: Akhenaten • Nefertiti · Tiye
Kiya · Mutnedjmet (Younger ladyKV35 - mother of Tut)
Royal Children: Meritaten · Meketaten · Ankhesenpaaten · Neferneferuaten Tasherit · Neferneferure · Setepenre ·
Baketaten · Meritaten Tasherit · Ankhesenpaaten Tasherit
Nobles and officials: Meryre II · Huya · Bek
Burial Locations in the Valley of the Kings: Akhetaten · Malkata · Karnak • KV62 • KV55 • KV35

Tutankhamun was about 170 cm (5 ft 7 in) tall. He had an overbite as well an arresting dolichocephalic (elongated) skull, a genetic
disposition of his family). A 2010 CT scan dispelled the mystery of his death showing that he had malaria and died of an infection
from a broken leg at 18 or 19 years of age.
The media legend of his tomb curse was exposed as built up toxic gases.

These traveling treasures of ancient Egypt are intended to return to Egypt after 2011, never to leave Egypt again. Zahi Hawass
has also been in dedicated pursuit of other long absent artifacts out at foreign collections. Egypt wants them returned. This includes
items such as the bust of Nefertiti, the Dendera zodiac ceiling painting from the Dendera Temple, the bust of Ankhhaf (the architect of
the Khafra Pyramid), the faces of Amenhotep III's tomb at the Louvre Museum, the Luxor Temple's obelisk at the Place de la Concorde and the statue of Hemiunu, nephew of the  Pharaoh Khufu, builder of the largest pyramid, the Rosetta Stone which was the singular key to decoding (by Jean- François Champollion) Egyptian Hieroglyphics and is seen as an icon of their identity.


Egypt's history in all its glory will be permanently displayed and conserved in the new Grand Egyptian Museum (GEM), built at a
cost of $US 550M. To be located in Al-Remayah Square, it will occupy 50 hectares of land and offer a view of the pyramids in Giza,
2.5 miles away. Scheduled for completion in 2013, the museum  will blend modernity and antiquity and bring  an international Center
of Egyptology with conservation resources, educational and research facilities, conference and seminar facilities. Surrounded by parks and gardens it will illustrate other facets of Egypt as a public cultural facility.
The building design  was awarded to Heneghan Peng Architects (of Ireland), Buro Happold and Arup. The exhibition master plan exhibition design and Museology is by Metaphor and Cultural Innovations Ltda.
