The Nancy Drew side to me has always been intrigued by Ancient Egypt. The hieroglyphics, the pharaohs, the pyramids, the mysteries behind it all are fascinating. It sounds lame, but I have seen every Indiana Jones movie more than once, I consume books about Cleopatra and I often speculate how the pyramids came to be.
While in Kansas City, my little brother mentioned there was an Ancient Egypt exhibit at the Nelson-Atkins Museum.
Be still my beating heart.
The 7′ hand-painted coffin of the noble woman Meretites is breathtaking.
It’s perfect, but imperfect.
And who doesn’t love a good mummy?
If this guy was guarding my tomb, you’d better believe there would be no grave robbers. That is, if he could move….
After only an hour at the museum, the two of us had to head back home. But, I was satisfied-for now. Watch out, mummies and golden coffins, for I will return.
