Bolton Museum to Bring Egyptian Relics to Shenzhen
From March 15 until June 16 around 300 ancient relics from Egypt will be placed on display at the exhibition hall of the OCT Bay in Nanshan. The exhibit will include mummies, sculptures, golden masks, arts and crafts. All of these artifacts come from the collection of the Bolton Museum in Britain.
One of the most valued items to be placed on display will be the body of a mummified prince believed to be the son of Ramesses II. The exhibit will also include the replication of the tomb of Thutmose III featuring splendid architecture of ancient Egypt. A mural will be placed on one of the interior wall for the tomb that will provide one of the most oldest and complete records of all ancient Egyptian beliefs which demonstrates the adventures man would experience 12 hours before they achieve immortality.
The Bolton Museum has the largest collection of ancient relics from Egypt in the world having more than 10,000 relics and 30,000 more in other collection and files. The exhibit will be the largest display of Egyptian relics in China and is intended to promote cultural exchanges while introducing international culture in Shenzhen.
