Manitoba Museum puts sarcophagus up for auction
Museum asking minimum $2,000 for more than two-metre high sarcophagus
The museum is inviting bids on the 2.4 metre high structure – but is setting the minimum price tag at $2,000.
The giant structure was made by local artists for the museum’s Wrapped: The Mummy of Pesed exhibit and has spent the entire bone-chilling winter outdoors.
Museum officials said the sarcophagus actually cost the museum $12,000.
The museum’s Egyptian mummy exhibit will remain on display until April 6.
