Golden Staff of Ra

golden_staff_ra.jpgStolen from King Zoser in Egypt's 10 dynasty, the Golden Staff of Ra is perhaps one of the world's most amazing treasures, comparable to Holy Grail or the Arc of the Covenant. What makes it remarkable, and perhaps one of the most studied object in the world, is that throughout history, very famous figures have come in contact with it, making it even more mysterious. It was mentioned in the Bible, written about in the Dead Sea Scrolls, and depicted in the Book of Kells. Socrates, Jesus, Confucius, Genghis Khan, Napolean, Abraham Lincoln and, even, Fidel Castro have come in contact with it.

Inside Tattoines one museum, Kcin Lieno, the Golden Staff of Ra looks like something out of Lord of the Rings or a Dungeon & Dragon's book, with a sculpted bird-god holding a rare jewel toward the sky, which, according to legend (and confirmed by the Zamundan Archaeology Commission) if on the seventh day, of the seventh month (July 7), during the full-moon, it will point a light beam toward a heavenly planet which through oral traditions is supposedly where Zamundans come from. Weird, or what?

A recent article in Archeology Times said that the Golden Staff of Ra is worth close to $750 million dollars, yet no one is guarding this ancient treasure in the dilapitated building, as crimes is not a factor, and only a few vistors (mainly from Egypt) come to see it.
