Описание: Mysterious boy king Tutankhamun returns to the U.S. in 2008, bringing rare treasures never before seen outside Egypt. For the millions of fans wanting a keepsake and chronicle of this magnificent new exhibition, this book will delight. Created by world-renowned art historians under the guidance of Zahi Hawass--director of Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities and a well-known media personality--it surveys 3,000 years of ancient Egyptian history by focusing on the lives and lifestyles of great pharaohs. Master photographer Sandro Vannini spotlights every dazzling artifact, using an innovative technique that makes the image jump off the page. The book's design echoes the exhibition, grouping objects representing family life, religious practices, funerary rituals, and gold. In each artifact--a queen's eye makeup container, a likeness of a princess eating duck, a sarcophagus made for a prince's cat--we glimpse the life of ancient Egyptian royalty: exotic and fascinating, yet so human. Gold gleams in a leopard-mask of gilded wood, a brilliant pendant bearing tiny goddesses, even the golden finger and toe covers of Tutankhamun himself, meant to protect his extremities in the afterlife. Featuring more than 120 treasures, a dozen evocative landscape and archaeology photos, and illuminating text, this book makes palpable the excitement, riches, and mysteries of ancient Egypt. It will be prominently displayed in all exhibition venues, and its contents will interest visitors to the show as well as Tut enthusiasts across the country.

Описание: This title offers a concise, beautifully illustrated history of the life of King Tut and the fascinating period of Ancient Egypt in which he lived. More than 3000 years after the death of King Tut, interest in the Pharaoh continues to grow. Tutankhamun has captivated the world ever since Howard Carter's spectacular discovery of his treasure-filled tomb in the Valley of the Kings in 1922. Zahi Hawass is one of the world's premier Egyptologists, and here, he tells the story of the golden king, a short-lived pharaoh who came to the throne as a child and died before the age of twenty, and of the royal dynasty that bred him. The reader meets Tutankhamun's grandparents, the Sun King Amenhotep III and his beautiful wife Tiye, as well as the boy-king's 'heretic' father Akhentaten, his stepmother Nefertiti, and his half-sisters, the princesses of Amarna. Tutankahmun lived and died during one of the most fascinating periods on Egyptian history; this book provides a window into this extraordinary time of turmoil and treasure. "The Golden King" is beautifully illustrated, primarily with photographs of objects from Cairo's Egyptian Museum collections. Many of these photographs were taken by National Geographic photographer, Kenneth Garrett, supplemented by archival photographs taken from the era of the tomb's discovery - a fascinating period of transition, in archaeology as much as politics - between the age of colonialism and the dawn of Egyptian nationasm.
