Egypt in Montana: Museum of the Rockies "Wonderful Things" Exhibit

25. King Tutankhamun's lifesize black and gold guardian Ka statue - Cairo

Experience a rare glimpse in Montana into Egypt's past at the exhibit '"Wonderful Things" from the Pharaoh's Tomb' at the Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman. The showcase of museum quality reproductions reigns from March 3 - September 3, 2007.

King Tutankhamun's lifesize black and gold guardian Ka statues in the exhibition vestibule flank a cornice topped tomb entrance which in turn frames your first glimpse of the magnificent Anubis and canopic shrines inside. The exhibit proceeds temple-like into receding columned halls bathed in royal blue and red. Intricate little statuettes and scaled down replicas surround large scale full sized centerpieces in each room.
Look at some of the "wonderful things."

Art from other sources besides King Tut's tomb complement the Egyptian items visiting Montana.
