ABSTRACT
The article reports on the revival of a remarkable exhibition regarding wonders of ancient Egypt shown through artefacts from the newly discovered tomb of the boy king Tutankhamun. Twenty-five years ago the Egyptian boy-king Tutankhamun was all the rage. Museums around the world scrambled to put on blockbuster exhibitions of the newly discovered Tutankhamun artefacts. Now however, with a second tour called Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs about to get underway in the United States, the Egyptian government has shed its mellow attitude of the past and adopted a new one.
