This month marks the 90th anniversary of the discovery of the Tomb of Tutankhamun by Howard Carter.

The High resolution recording and production of an exact facsimile of the Tomb of Tutankhamun is part of a major initiative by the Supreme Council of Antiquities to preserve the tombs in the Valley of the Kings. The project is being run by the University of Basel with permission from the Supreme Council of Antiquities. The agreement covers the tombs of Seti I, Nefertari and Tutankhamun.

Factum Art spent two months in the most famous of tombs scanning it in 3D. All the details were digitalized, even the accumulated dust. After the recording, the processing of data and the production of the tomb and the sarcophagus of Tutankhamun was carried out in Factum Art’s warehouse in Madrid.

The Egyptian government will install the replica of the tomb in the Valley of the Kings (Egypt) and will shut the authentic one in order to preserve it.
