The Lotushead of young Prince TutBookcover Sun Child with Lotushead

Thought you might like to know which pictures of me online are my favorites.
Or, rather, which ones look the most like I did.

I like the lotus head, but I also like how René alters and uses the image of my lotushead.

Curiously one of the statues looks like a woman, and the profiles are different.

The Mummy – The Movie

Blogged by on Saturday May 18th, 2013 at 12:01 am in Author's, Egypt, Magic, Tut | Comments Off on The Mummy – The Movie

No matter how many times it plays, we always love to watch these:

So, when we saw this movie in the theater (The Mummy Returns), and this scene came on, I was thrown back in my seat, and Tut shouted in my ear:

“We never had anything like that in my day!”

You can imagine my shock.

Sometimes it is hard to deal with —>Magical Muses.

And I don’t even know how to explain how Tut got loose in the world. I do know he is stunned by what has happened in Egypt especially in the last few years and that he knows that something worse than the –>Hyksos has seized that country.

Happy birthday, curse of Tutankhamun. The rumor that some mysterious force set out to kill the team who opened the tomb of the boy pharaoh turns 90 today (April 5).

The famous Lotushead of young Prince Tutankhaten, representing the rebirth of the Living God, the Sun god, the Sun King, the Sun Child.

You can believe it or not.
Strange things happened.
The skeptic Live Science leaves out a lot of them, and pooh-poohs most of them.

Tut doesn’t care, His spirit was released when they unwrapped his mummy, taking away all the kept him tied to that body.
And if you think he doesn’t ‘live again’, think about how many dead men make millions and millions of money 3300 years after death.

Ghost Music: Trumpets of King Tut

Blogged by on Monday March 25th, 2013 at 1:16 pm in Egypt, Tut | Comments Off on Ghost Music: Trumpets of King Tut

It must have been a magnificent experience to hear a whole phalanx of these trumpets sound, just one is amazing.

Unfortunately the copper trumpet was stolen by looters who broke into the Cairo Museum during the Egyptian Revolution in 2011, but was fortunately recovered:

A –>recent BBC Radio 4 programme ‘Ghost Music’, which I was involved with, resurrected an old recording of even older musical instruments- the –>1939 broadcast of trumpets over 3,300 years old, discovered in the tomb of the ancient Egyptian king, Tutankhamun. These instruments are the only two surviving trumpets from ancient Egypt.

Photos and video. worth waiting through the video to hear them, even thru modern lips.

(According to trumpeter and historian Don L. Smithers, the longer of the two is pitched in the key of Bb and the other is in the key of C. –>History of the bugle)

A shortcut to the youtube video of the sound of the trumpets of Tut:
