Egyptian Tomb

Egyptian Tomb, originally uploaded by Simian Cephalopod.

Marcia and John were out visiting and one of the wacky places we visited was the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum down in San Jose. According to the museum it is the largest collection of Egyptian antiquities in Western North America.

Aside from the, how should I put this, quirkiness of the Rosicrucians themselves, the museum held its own in terms of content and presentation. I'm such a sucker for secret societies anyway that they could have had a plastic mummy rapped in toilet paper and I would have been satisfied, but thankfully there were proper mummies and other such old stuffs. Good times were had by all.

This shot is of John peering down into a tomb.
