The world famous Mask of King Tut

 

TUTANKHAMUN - The Egyptian Museum in Cairo contains the most extensive collection of Pharaonic artifacts, but the most important collection is that of the funerary items from the tomb of Tutankhamun. After the tomb's discovery in the Valley of the Kings in 1922, much of the contents were transferred to this great museum. The gold coffin is made of 450 pounds of solid gold. It is one of the finest examples of goldsmithing work in history. These are some of the only treasures from a Pharaonic tomb as all the others were taken by tomb robbers shortly after their completion.
