Buried Treasure



Container with Lion on Lid, 18th Dynasty Tomb of Tutankhamen, Egyptian Supreme Council of Antiquities.

The treasure of the "boy-king" is making it's way around the country again. I saw it the last time it came through in the 1970's - it is amazing and worth the ticket price which is still less than most events.

I saw this in October of last year in Los Angeles. You can still see some of the reddish powder on it. Maybe they used it for blush? It's supposed to be a cosmetic jar. Thanks for your site!

while "it's" with the apostrophe is the contraction for it is, "its" is the possessive for the noun "treasure" that precedes it.

Thanks, I'm putting the apostrophe back in.

We were lucky enough to see Tut's treasures at the Egyptian Museum in November - beyond imagination... the fantastic, luxurious details!
