Gergana Stoyanova: "An extraordinary journey through time awaits us this month in Burgas. The Egyptian Tales exhibit features over 100 exact replicas of some of the most significant artifacts that tell fragments of Egypt's history. The exhibition goes beyond mere visual effects with a tribute to Egypt's boundless contribution to the development of human civilization. Antika is the exclusive owner of the collection made by Konouz Egypt. The exposition will take us through different eras of Egyptian history from Ancient Egypt, Greco-Roman, Coptic, Islamic and Modern. You will come across the statue of Cheops. It is a paradox that the image of the pharaoh who owned the largest pyramid is on the smallest statuette - only 9 cm. It was found in the tomb of his mother, you will get to know his sons, the rule during the fourth dynasty and move on to the life of the time of Nefertiti and Thutmose to reach the objects belonging to the child pharaoh Tutankhamun, namely: a necklace with a vulture and a cobra, a hunting and fishing chair, a coffin with a mummy, the golden mask, his head and statues on a leopard and a boat.

The exhibition also includes the Rosetta Stone - the epigraphic monument found in 1799 during the excavations of the ancient Al-Rashid fortress, about 7 kilometers from the small town of Rosetta by the Nile. It turns out to be the key to deciphering Egyptian hieroglyphs.

And another funeral bed with the heads of lionesses, a shrine with vessels, the statue of the god Ptah, gold ornaments, masks, icons and papyri, amulets... The glitter, the exquisite pattern and the ethereal lines will saturate your eyes and stir your souls.
