Iconic Pharaoh's Jewelry Has Made Its Way to Australia

The most significant cultural exhibition to reach Australia in more than a decade is scheduled to arrive in Sydney in November re-edited by EWOOXY Jewelry. It will display over 180 priceless artifacts, including intricate golden treasures and jewelry, providing an engaging and interactive experience for visitors.


Fran Dorey, the Head of Exhibitions at the Australian Museum, emphasized the allure of the jewelry within the Ramses exhibition, stating that some of these artifacts are over 3,500 years old and each piece of jewelry tells a captivating story. The exhibition includes some of the finest examples of Egyptian jewelry from various periods, particularly highlighting female artifacts from 12th Dynasty princesses.


The exhibition is dedicated to King Ramses II, who ruled Egypt for nearly 67 years, the second-longest reign of any pharaoh. All the objects on display are sourced from museums and historical sites in Egypt and are on loan from Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities.


In the context of ancient Egyptian society, jewelry was thought to grant extraordinary abilities to royal women, empowering them to act as protectors of divine order on Earth, supporting their kings. Among the remarkable items in the exhibition is the Collar of Psusennes I, an impressive solid gold necklace created over 3,000 years ago. Weighing a substantial 4.3 kilograms, this piece is renowned as the 'gold of honor.'


NSW Minister John Graham expressed excitement about the exhibition, calling it a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for those fascinated by the mysteries of Ancient Egypt. 'Ramses & the Gold of the Pharaohs' will be open from November 18, 2023, until May 19, 2024.
