By the beard of the pharaoh

This news went around the world: The beard of the world-famous, more than 3,000-year-old golden mask of Tut Ankh Amun fell off during a cleaning procedure and was hastily glued back on improperly. With the support of adhesives experts from Henkel the beard was removed from the mask and fixed with a customized glue provided by Henkel. In December the restored golden mask of the young pharaoh was presented to the world public during a ceremony at the Egyptian museum in Cairo.
