Gold face

Found enclosed in four tombs, sealed into 3 golden sarcophagi…

… he was the last of his family.

Son of an incest between his father Amenhotep IV and one of his sister. His half-sister wife, Ankhesenamun, couldn’t escape two consecutive stillbirths.

He died of malaria and genetic diseases.

His mummy rotted and didn’t survive his time. His name was Tutankhamun.

Pictures shot at the homonym exhibition.

Into the wild

I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately […]

to front only the essential facts of life, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived […]

I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear […]

I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life […]

to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms…

(Walden, Henry David Thoreau)
