PARIS, Mar. 25 (SEE)- It’s almost been one hundred years since Mr. Howard Carter stumbled upon King Tutankhamun’s tomb, unearthing some of the world’s most bedazzling antiques.
Celebrating his centenary, King Tut’s treasures are on a 10-city global tour that kicked off in Los Angeles, USA. And, currently the artifacts are on their second stop in Paris, France.
While in the city of lights, the king’s belongings are on display at the Grand Halle De la Villette, welcoming visitors till September 2019. The masterpieces showcased include various statues, statuettes, wooden treasure boxes, canopy utensils and alabaster pots.
The exhibition was inaugurated by Egypt’s Minister of Antiquities Dr. Khaled Al-Anany and France’s Minister of Culture Franck Riester on March 21.
