Birds – including owls – feature on many Egyptian artefacts and Hootankhamoon is a very decorative Egyptian-style owl, who has come a Pharaoh-way from his pyramid to wow the crowds of Birmingham. The unmistakeable royal blue, turquoise and gilt from the world’s most famous sarcophagus are all there, and his owl eyes have been kohled-up perfectly!
