Tut Unwrapped

After 3000 years under tight wrap (literally) the 19 year old pharaoh (at the time of his death) is unveiled for the first time.

Ole Tut is looking a little rough these day's. But such preservation after 3000 years is remarkable. Wonder if this will cause a resurgence of the Curse of the Mummy?

It's an interesting inversion of power. The poor nobodies in life, who were lorded over by the Egyptian royalty, get to rest in peace, while the pharoahs are dug up, unwrapped, analyzed, picked apart and put on display in front of crowds of modern day nobodies. Not to mention having all their treasure looted.
