Dear Mr. Waugh,
WOW that was an amazing video. It is interesting how the Pharaoh and his people believed that gold was from the sun god and gives you super natural powers. I also agree with the narrator that the mask is the master piece to the body and is amazing to look at.

Pharoah Tutankhamun mummy mask was consided the most beautiful piece of art of its kind. Also the Egyptians believed that gold was from the sun god Ra. They lavished gold and used it in burial chambers and other artifacts. They thought that the Pharoah most have a lot of gold if he was to have a successful afterlife with the gods.
