My girl "J"'s research topic was the Egyptian sarcophagus. For those of you who are not familiar, the sarcophagus, it is the casket used to bury the Egyptian king. Usually it is highly adorned in gold and lapis to show the riches of the pharaoh and securely bring him into the afterlife.
"J's" is a beautiful example.
I numbered the picture above to make it easier to explain:
First off, the entire sarcophagus is a stroller box. J's mom is due any day now with twins!
1) Paper plates! "J" spray painted them gold and then attached them with a glue gun
2) To make a 3D effect of the crook and staff, "J" used a broken coat hanger. They wrapped it in paper and then spray painted.
3) These smaller round circles... coffee filters! Bam!
4) All the blue which was supposed to represent lapis... NAIL POLISH!
Holla! That is one creative girl in my room!
I love it!
