A Most Elegant Dead Person


With his linen scarf and pierced ears, Tutmosis IV maintains a peerless sense of style nearly three-and-a-half thousand years after his reign as the 8th Pharaoh of the 18th dynasty of Ancient Egypt. He is now a resident of the Museum of Antiquities in Cairo, where I visited him last week.

Your most elegant dead person Tutmosis reminds me of Christopher Reeve.
