Excellent addition, Marie! Years ago, we had a King Tut exhibit come to San Franisco, but sad to say, it was disappointing with too few pieces of real interest. Canopic jars would have been nice.🌞

Thanks. I saw a Tut exhibit in Chicago in the mid 70s. I think it was the first time they had been allowed to travel. It was incredible. The Egyptian Museum in Cairo, while it has it all, is in serious need of renovation and updating.

Fascinating! I’ve had a thing for Tut since the exhibit of his burial treasures came to Mexico when I was a little kid, but I had never heard about this peculiarity before. It does make you wonder whether it represents a significant shift in thinking about the afterlife, doesn’t it? Thank you for starting my day with such an interesting read, Marie. In your honor, I’m going to try to work “the exceptionalism of Tutankhamun’s canopic equipment” into a sentence at work today. 🙂
