Egyptian papyrus with the image of Tutankhamun, Nefertiti and an Egyptian cat.
Special glow in the dark decoration, made in Egypt. Take a good look at the image. Turn off the lights and another image will appear at the same place. How's this possible? This papyrus absorbs daylight and artificial light. As soon as it is very dark, an image of a large Egyptian cat appears. The image also appears clearly in UV light / Blacklight (see picture).
The word papyrus refers to a thick paper-like material made from the pith of the papyrus plant, Cyperus papyrus. Papyrus can also refer to a document written on sheets of papyrus joined together side by side and rolled up into a scroll, an early form of a book. The plural for such documents is papyri.
Papyrus is first known to have been used in ancient Egypt (at least as far back as the First Dyanstie), as the Cyperus papyrus plant was a wetland sedge that was once abundant in theSudd of Southern Sudan along with the Nile Delta of Egypt. The Ancient Egyptian used papyrus as a writing material as well as employing it commonly in the construction of other artifacts such as redd boats, mats, rope, sandals and baskets.
