Sullo sfondo la statua della Libertà e il ponte di Brooklyn.
"Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs" is the renowned exhibition that has drawn 7 million visitors worldwide, and counting. The exhibition is currently open at the de Young Museum in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park, and will continue to New York City's brand new exhibition hall, The Discovery Times Square Exposition - located in the heart of Times Square - in April 2010.
"Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs" explores the figures who guided ancient Egypt more than 3,000 years ago. The exhibition focuses on the 18th Dynasty, a 100-year period when Egypt was at the height of its power and the "golden age" of Egyptian artistry. This was the era when Tutankhamun and his ancestors reigned. The extensive array of more than 130 extraordinary artifacts from the tomb of Tutankhamun and other ancient Egyptian sites features 50 of Tutankhamun's burial objects, including his royal diadem and one of the four gold and precious stone inlaid canopic coffinettes that contained his mummified internal organs.
