Created especially for the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, these gorgeous playing cards are perfectly die-cut in the shape of the ancient Egyptian sarcophagus of Nes-mut-aat-neru (c. 700-675 B.C.).
Hieroglyphics and motifs of gods and goddesses and rich gold ink accents adorn each of the cards. the gorgeous box opens to hold the double included.
Wonderful for display, assemblage and collage - and, of course for playing ancient and modern card games.
There are 55 cards per deck. The cards measure 1-3/4 inch by 5-3/4 inches.
