Many Mummies

When you enter the mummy room at Hall of Ancient Egypt  at the Houston Museum of Natural Science, you feel like you are in a Raiders of the Lost Ark movie. The highlights are all focused on the exhibits, while everything else is bathed in darkness.

This only adds to the mystery of the artifacts and helps you to reflect that these belongs to the royalty of their day. This shroud casts reflections on the side of the display case, giving the effect of many more artifacts. There were about a half dozen other sarcophagi next to this case though.
