  • A wall painting of Tutankhamun comes to life. He tells us that he ruled Egypt for a short time but was a lucky king because he has all his treasures to take with him into the afterlife. He believes that when he goes for the day of judgement and when they weigh his heart against the feather of truth they will see that he was a fair and truthful ruler. His scarab amulet will protect his heart so that he will pass safely into the gracious afterlife. This clip has subtitles available in Flash.
