This is where the box-inside-the-box-on-top-of-the-box sits, it is removable.  I’ve changed around the scarab on the top since the last photo was taken, and as soon as I put the map inside the lid of the box-on-top-of-the-box, recopy the hieroglyphs and demotic on to some antique paper (regretfully, not papyrus), roll that up and put it in the capsule, and affix the wire to hold the capsule in its place it will be done.

Then a good-bye photo, and off to its new home.

This is one of the inner parts for the top of this box – I love the light coming through the jewel, so I’m not going to put in the portrait that was going to be on the bottom of the lid.  There will be several items in the ‘secret’ compartment, including a map and a message written in demotic script.

I may have over-thought this (as usual).
