I love to see a fancy mask compact. Like they wear at the Mardi Gras or a masquerade ball.

For landmarks the Eiffel Tower, the Coliseum and the Parthenon.

Hi All,

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" [Eek!] surrounded by an "embalming pool" of Beautiful....just a thought! [New Laugh]

I like the idea of a mardi gras mask also. I don't know about the mummy thing though!

I vote for the Mardi Gras mask for sure, and I absolutely vote for a Christmas Tree, a Santa Claus and other Christmas them series. How about a realistic and jeweled pumpkin? [Big Grin]

Mimi,

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

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

Hi, for those of us that don't celebrate Christmas how about a Menorah or Star of David or Dreidel for the holidays, Lainey [Smile]

Thanks a lot - so it's a kind of decorated, ornate treasure chest??? Is it that???

Ann
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!

Hi Ann,

a Sarcophagus is in German Sarkophag, so you see it's nearly the same word.

Liliane, es ist keine Schatztruhe, sondern ein Sarg fr Mumien (einbalsamierte tote menschliche Krper).

Liliane,

Brillant idea about using the treasure chest with the Sphinx & Peacock. Tried it and it looks great. [Big Grin] [Big Grin] [Big Grin]

It is a well known fact that the visiting kings brought Cleo chests of jewels with the peacock. [Big Grin]

Do you have a good idea for the Junk?? [Big Grin]

Hi Brigitte,

Have no idea what you said. [Big Grin] [New Laugh]

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).
