I like the Mardi Gras mask idea. After seeing Ann and Ken's Egyptian splendor, I would really like to see more of that theme. As Lisa said, a sarcophagus would be great...open the lid to reveal a teeny jeweled "mummy" surrounded by an "embalming pool" of Beautiful....just a thought!

I do love your idea of the tiny mummy!! That would be quite different to have the actual solid surround something. I like it.

It is the casket that the Egyptians put the mummy in. Very decorative and ornate.

Thanks a lot - so it's a kind of decorated, ornate treasure chest??? Is it that???
I dont know exactly if there is a word for that - but a "treasure chest" is a "Schatztruhe" (nouns, everything which you can touch plus names, you write the first letter big, in the German language).
Have all a wonderful day!

a Sarcophagus is in German Sarkophag, so you see it's nearly the same word.
Liliane, es ist keine Schatztruhe, sondern ein Sarg f¸r Mumien (einbalsamierte tote menschliche Kˆrper).

Brillant idea about using the treasure chest with the Sphinx & Peacock. Tried it and it looks great.
It is a well known fact that the visiting kings brought Cleo chests of jewels with the peacock.
Do you have a good idea for the Junk??

Have no idea what you said.
To be really correct an egyptian sarcophagus was a stone protective container highly decorated with sculptures and inscriptions made to hold the coffin.
King Tuts sarcophagus held 3 coffins , one inside the other.
In New Orleans highly decorated stone (marble or granite)boxes/sarcophagus are above ground and a popular tourist attraction. ( N.O. is below sea level and burial underground is impossible).
