The exhibition will be held July 7 until Sept. 9, and will present 150 ancient masterpieces from the Egyptian Museum. It will also present a series of superb ensembles discovered in the royal and princely tombs of Pharaonic Egypt.
Anany told Egypt Today that the event is under the auspices of Prince Albert II, and that it is the second forum for Egyptian antiques to be held in Monaco. The first exhibition was held in 2009 and included 26 pieces under the title “Queens of Egypt.”
“The Gold of the Pharaohs exhibition includes two pieces from the Collection of King Tutankhamen, other antiques, ornaments and jewelry from different collections. This exhibition will deliver a message that the Egyptian Museum will further impress its visitors,” he said.
