"strange animals, statues and gold—everywhere the glint of gold." Archeologist Howard Carter, describing his discovery of King Tut's tomb in 1922.
This past Sunday I visited the de Young Museum in San Francisco where I saw the King Tut exhibit. It was fantastic! The treasures found in his tomb included many pieces of his household furniture, made around 1350 B.C. Check out the imitation leopard skin campaign stool with the swan legs---too cool.
