King Tut was nine years old when he became Pharaoh. He was a teenager when he died. His people did not have time in nine years to built a huge tomb for him. They had to quickly finish a tiny tomb. Because his tomb was so small, archaeologists and grave robbers did not discover it until many thousands of years later.
It was not until 1922 that Howard Carter entered Tut’s tomb. He found a bag of gold rings on the floor that might have fallen accidentally. If robbers had been there, they did not take very much. There was still a solid gold mask on King Tut’s face, now resides at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. The tomb was full of treasures.
From the earliest dynasties onward, Egypt developed a very high degree of civilization. And the exploitation of metals – copper, bronze and precious metals such as gold and silver – was an essential part of their culture. The Egyptian copper-smith must have been a man of importance since he had to make saws, chisels, knives. As well as dishes and trays, all out of copper or bronze, for artisans of the many trades.
The history of copper in architecture can be linked to its durability, corrosion resistance, prestigious appearance, and also the ability to form complex shapes. For centuries, craftsmen and designers utilized these attributes to build aesthetically pleasing and long-lasting building systems.
Like all our other exquisite jewelry, this plate is handcrafted, and highly detailed by our talented craftsmen. It is also top quality and can last for a lifetime.
