Director general of the Egyptian Museum Sabah Abdel Razeq said that taking photos of the golden mask of King Tutankhamun outside its display case is prohibited.

In a statement released on Friday 26/02/2021, Abdel Razeq added that the mask's display case was not opened since its restoration in 2015.

Abdel Razeq's remarks came after the museum received a large number of requests from professional photographers and international TV channels to take photos of the golden mask, in return for paying large sums of money.

She asserted that the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities rejects photographing the mask outside its display cabinet in order to preserve this important and unique artifact.
