Tutankhamun: Treasures of the Golden Pharoah at the Saatchi Gallery, London

Commemorating the 100th anniversary of the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb, the Saatchi Gallery is currently exhibiting a wide collection of artefacts, many of which have never before been outside of Egypt.

It will be the last time these priceless exhibits will tour internationally and so for many, it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to see them. Previous exhibitions have showcased 55 of King Tut’s funerary artefacts, but the Saatchi gallery is proud to display 150.

11 Cool Things to Do in Cardiff

My mum’s lived on the outskirts of Cardiff now for about ten years. It’s not anywhere I’d ever considered visiting before but it does make for a great day out.…

I’m not an insta perfect poser which means we generally end up with nuggets like this 🤦‍♀️😂

What do you prefer: real life or insta perfect?

  • Day 2 in my New York itinerary —
This dreary weather and storm Dennis is making me crave a holiday.
—
Whilst we hibernate and avoid the bad weather, I’ll be dreaming of New York.

May even finish doing our photobook this weekend 🤦‍♀️

It’s where Tutankhamun’s liver was stored in his tomb *shudders*
—
And it’s the first time this artefact has been outside of Egypt. Creepy and fascinating.
—
The second photo is a sculpture of Horus that sat atop one of Tutankhamun’s chariots...less creepy.
—
I absolutely love Egyptian mythology. Growing up, I was obsessed with ancient Egypt and desperately wanted to be an Egyptologist. It’s a little (maybe a lot) more gruesome in real life but it’s still a fascinating civilisation.
—
I went to the Saatchi Gallery in London at the weekend to visit the new Tutankhamun exhibition they have. It’s commemorating 100 years since Howard Carter discovered King Tut’s tomb, and many of the artefacts on display have never left Egypt before.
—
It was an incredible experience that’s left me with a longing to visit Egypt.
—
If you’re interested in the exhibition, there’s a blog now live on my website 🙌

  • On Sunday, I went to the Saatchi Gallery in London to visit the Tutankhamun exhibition.
—
It was an amazing experience with so many artefacts having never left Egypt before.
—
There were 150 funerary artefacts in total, discovered by Howard Carter in King Tut’s tomb, including over 400 shabtis (small figurines of workers thought to serve the pharaoh in the Netherworld, many of which had their own miniature tools, determining which trade they would be doing in the afterlife)
—
It was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The exhibition is in London until 3rd May before it leaves for Boston. It’s the final world tour these artefacts will make before making their way to the new museum in Egypt. —
On a side note...a distinct lack of Egyptian themed emojis out there!

If you want to know more, head over to today’s blog post; I share the full experience and more photos of what was on display. Link in bio.
