Background
The Sanxingdui Gilded Mask and the Gold Sacrophagus of Tutenkhamon were excavated from ancient cultural remains with a history of 3,000 years in China and Egypt respectively. The former, excavated from the Sanxingdui Ruins of Guanghan, Sichuan Province, China, is a refined gilded bronze ornament with gilded edges once used by Chinese ancestors in sacrificial rites for gods in charge of the Heaven, Earth, rivers and mountains. The latter, inlaid with shiny jewels, belonged to an Egyptian pharaoh, and was discovered in the Pharaoh Tutenkhamon of the 18th Dynasty tomb of Valley of the Kings, which sits at Thebes in Egypt. The exquisite craftsmanship, distinguished noble appearance, and the mysterious god-human connection epitomized in both antiques fully display the glorious cultures and arts of the two ancient civilizations.
