Tomorrow it has been exactly 90 years ago since the tomb of Tutankhamun was opened. Howard Carter and his crew excavated the site of KV62 and found the tomb underneath some old huts that had been put up a couple of seasons before. Even though the announcement of the discovery of the tomb was made on November 29, the actual examination of King Tut’s remains didn’t start till a year later, on November 11, 1923.
I have always found Egyptian history fascinating (I even have a tattoo of the Eye of Horus between my shoulders), so it seemed only logical to dedicate this week’s mandala to King Tut himself.
Even though the colors aren’t in my usual palette of pinks and pastels, I like this one. It’s a truly royal mandala :)
