“Terrible Sounds” is a re-assessment of images that surrounded the openings of the Tomb of Tutankhamoun, first in the year 1922 by British explorer Howard Carter, then in 1924 when an Egyptian elite pining for power re-opened the tomb. For these men, this ancient Pharaoh’s tomb played a significant role in their competing ideologies of the national “liberation” of Egypt.
