Dallas Museum of Art. The reason for the little excursion? King Tut!
A little known fact about Alisa... fascinated with anything ancient Egyptian. I have been for a loooong time. I don't know why, just am. I have all kinds of books on the subject. I even completely get into Elizabeth Peters' Amelia Peabody series. This is fun, light reading, but I always get so into the story that I don't sleep at night... just read until the book is over. Love that Amelia!

So back to the King. I thought the exhibit was, over all, really great. I was a little disappointed that Tut's death mask was not part of the exhibit, but we did get to see his possible grandmother's, as well as, her sarcophagus. That was pretty cool! And we got to see some of the jewelry items that were wrapped in his linens with him... jeweled collar and his gold crown. Plus quite a few of the items from his tomb. There were also artifacts from other tombs of the Golden Age. Oh, for me one of the coolest things, were the head statues of Nefertiti. Amazing!
This is another postcard image. We actually got to see this piece. It's a jar depicting Tut as a lion trampling his Nubian foes.
Now on to crows. I finished another Bellaween project. Seriously, I'm loving these so much, I think there is a chance I may continue Halloween crafting even after Halloween has passed!
My Farmboy has named this crow Russell. Ha! We are such a comedic family. He also pointed out how very Egyptian it looks. Which I thought was amusing considering the above.
I hope everyone is having a beautiful week so far and thanks for stopping by!
