Incredible Photos Of King Tut’s Tomb Discovery Seen In Color For The First Time

What’s cooler than being able to go back and digitally remaster a famous Egyptian’s tomb?

That’s exactly what photo colorizer Jordan Lloyd of Dynamichrome was tasked with. Lloyd was able to digitally recolor the exploration of King Tut’s tomb discovery from photos taken back in 1922.

The astonishing project took months and extensive research in order for Lloyd to achieve the authentic color references and it looks as though his work paid off.

The photo you see below was taken as soon as King Tut’s coffin lid was removed. The 24-pound burial mask surrounding Tutankhamun is made of solid gold. It’s quite an impressive gallery:
