Solar Bark Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

According to the Egyptians, the solar god Re had two golden barks in which he navigated the skies. By offering these solar barks, they associated the Pharaoh's last journey with Re's daily movements. Cheops's solar bark is one of two models unearthed in a pit near the Pyramid of Cheops in 1954 by the Egyptian architect Kamal el-Malakh, who spent 10 years of his life piecing together the 1 224 parts of the puzzle.
