About the statue:

One of a pair that flanked the sealed entryway when his tomb was discovered in 1922, the original Guardian stands about six-feet tall. The larger-than-life reproduction was recreated in painstaking detail to stand guard around the world during the final tour of his treasures.





KING TUT: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh contains the largest assembly of artifacts and gold from the boy king’s tomb ever on public display outside of Egypt and the latest findings science has revealed about King Tut’s life and death.

The exhibition is presented by the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities, IMG and the California Science Center.
