THE ART OF PRESERVING AND PACKING KING TUT’S TREASURES, PHOTOGRAPHS BY GIL GARCETTI show us how to safely pack and move 3,300-year-old treasures. It takes great care and you need experienced technicians trained in a variety of scientific and artistic specialties.

In February 2018, an international team arrived at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo to pack and ship 150 artifacts from King Tut’s royal tomb for exhibition at the California Science Center. Photographer Gil Garcetti documented the process, providing a window into the art and science of touring precious antiquities.
Thirty evocative photographs taken behind the scenes reveal this delicate process. The images depict the team of people you never see and the stories of how they bring us the treasures that enrich our lives.
