SCA Chief inspects Ramses the Great and the Gold of the Pharaohs in Australia

Supreme Council of Antiquities (SCA) Secretary General Mostafa Waziri has inspected the special halls dedicated to receive the international touring exhibition titled “Ramses the Great and the Gold of the Pharaohs” in its fourth stop in the Australian Museum in Sydney after the end of its tour in the French capital Paris.

In statements on Sunday, Waziri checked on the preparations of the halls, the security and precautionary measures applied to ensure the safety of the antiquity pieces.
The exhibition is an opportunity to learn more about the life, reign and history of one of the greatest builders of Ancient Egypt, he said.
The exhibition displays more than 180 unique and distinctive artifacts from the Egyptian Museum (Tahrir) collections, including sarcophagi, statues, gold and silverware, the restored funerary mask of Egyptian Pharaoh Amenemope, exceptional jewellery and furniture from the untouched tombs of the city of Tanis, etc.
Some of the artefacts are over 3,000 years old and are being exhibited for the first time outside Egypt.
The exhibition will not only showcase some of the most precious artifacts but will also allow people mesmerized by the ancient Egyptian civilization to discover the Abu Simbel Temple and Neferatri Temple through a unique virtual experiment made available by the exhibitors.
The exhibition started its international tour in November 2021 with a stop in the US city of Houston, then in San Francisco and its third stop was in Paris in April, 2023.
