Dubbed the ‘Pharaohs’ Golden Parade’, the pharaohs, the 18 kings and four queens were transported in climate-controlled cases loaded onto trucks. The twenty-two (22) customized golden-finished trucks were decorated with wings and pharaonic designs.

The pharaohs were originally buried around 3,000 years ago in secret tombs in the Valley of Kings and the nearby Deir el-Bahri site.
