So the upcoming production ‘Tut’ has me both excited at the prospect of seeing my much loved 18th Dynasty subjects portrayed on Television, but also quivering with fear and a tad bit of anger at the thought of where they are taking their story-line.
tiny-librarian alerted me to the above still from the up-coming mini-series and once I had visually devoured the stunning costume (THAT CROWN!) I was instantly drawn to the thrones.
Naturally, as any Ancient Egyptian production goes, someone had to be sitting on the lion-handled, Tutankhamun-and-Ankhesenamun-chilling-out-at-the-back Throne which Ankhesenamun is shown sitting on here. But I was pleasantly surprised (thrilled, lets face it I was thrilled) to see that the empty throne (which I have casually highlighted) is also a replica of a relic from Tut’s tomb.
Another lesser known, but no less impressive throne has been included. Lets hope and pray that more little details like this spring up!!
