Egyptians lined their eyes with kohl and used mascara to deepen their lashes. Because eyes were believed to be the windows of the soul, they concealed them to ward off any evil spirits and bad energy. Egyptian men and women wore mascara. Ancient drawings of Cleopatra suggest that mascara and body painting were widely used for both protection, celebration, war and death practices.
The traditions and practices of the Ancient Egyptians is so fascinating, when the California Science Center announced the King Tut Exhibition, I immediately book at trip. The exhibition includes treasures that have never left Egypt before, to provide an immersive journey of King Tut’s desire to be immortal. Not only do you get to see a lot of jewelry, weapons, clothing, and furniture, you also get to learn about the explorer, Howard Carter, who found the tomb in 1922. Talk about a man on a mission!
This sandal screams KATE SPADE to me.
“There are three deaths. The first is when the body ceases to function. The second is when the body is consigned to the grave. The third is that moment, sometime in the future, when your name is spoken for the last time.”
King Tutankhamun legacy will live on for a very long time.
