there was this exhibit - the Death Gallery - into which only two people were allowed at a time.

i was by myself, so I went in alone. you walk in along a narrow white marble path surrounded by dark water. then, you cross several gaps in the path, step onto a round marble piece, and then walk up a few ascending steps to a platform on which two large marble boxes are resting - one containing an Egyptian sarcophagus. in front is a canvas with a calligraphic rendering of a poem, entitled 'The Butterfly'...

i shouldn't say anything more about it; it's something that needs to be experienced.
