The name in translation means - treasure. They are a project of "Antika", and the exhibits are previously scanned and made by hand in order to preserve their authentic appearance. A certificate was issued for each of them by the Supreme Council of Antiquities in Egypt. Visitors can also browse the gift shop offering certified miniatures for purchase.
