SOLID SILVER


The hawk-headed sarcophagus of Ancient Egyptian Pharaoh, Shoshenq II (887–885 BC) was made of pure solid silver. The value of this precious coffin would have been astronomical at the time of its making and its value today is priceless.

Shoshenq is the only example in all of Ancient Egypt where a pharaoh was buried in a solid silver sarcophagus.

This guy journeyed to the afterlife in style.
