The tomb of Kha and his wife Merit is just one of the many treasures harbored by the Egyptian Museum. Uncovered in Luxor in 1906, the tale it tells is to this day a touching one. Kha was the architect in charge of maintenance works on the Valley of Kings burial sites. Upon his wife's premature death, it would seem that he adapted for her use his own sarcophagus, the only one of the two that had already been completed, taking care to comfortably fit his bride's body into a coffin too big for her and ensuring that her death mask be ornated with the most precious of stones. When he eventually died himself, he was finally eternally reunited with his beloved in body and (hopefully) soul.
