Around 100 works from the Egyptian Museum’s collection are being showcased at the Mori Arts Center Gallery to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the exhibition’s sponsor TBS (Tokyo Broadcasting System) Television. Selected pieces include masks, wooden coffins and various statues related to the lives of the Egyptian ruling class. One of the highlights, the golden mask of King Amenemopet, is being shown in Japan for the first time in 21 years.
A film of Tutankhamun’s mask — the first time the work has been filmed outside of its display case — will also be shown in high definition at a 4K theater.
