Wooden sarcophagus unearthed in Egypt
Published on February 25th, 2014 | by Admin0
The sarcophagus is important for the detailed depictions of bird feather shapes and sizes painted on its lid, motifs that have earned it the title of Feathers Sarcophagi, according to Egypt’s antiquities minister Mohamed Ibrahim.
The 2 metre long, 42 cm tall sarcophagus is in very good condition, Ibrahim said, and also engraved with titles of the deceased, which archeologists have not yet been able to identify.
