Latest Obsession: Egypt

So I'm on uni holidays and have way too much time on my hands. Lately I have been looking at everything Egyptian. 

I found these awesome jewellery boxes on ebay:

They even have canopic jars! - These were used to store various internal organs during the mummification process.

I want to dress like this:

The headresses, caftans, sandals and of course, jewellery - jewelled collars, earrings, anklets, bracelets, rings. Even the poor would try to wear as much jewellery as possible, usually wearing brightly coloured pottery jewellery.


I love pyramids. I want to live in one, or decorate my house with Egyptian artefacts.
Pyramid artwork:

Alternatively, when I die I would like it to be a big deal, like the Pharaohs in Egypt, and have a tomb dedicated to me, like this one in New Orleans:

An Egyptian coffin:
