History: The first wave of Egyptian Revival to hit the United States was in architecture during the 1800’s, including building such as: Benjamin Latrobe’s original Library of Congress (1808) and the Washington Monument (1848), in addition to cemetery and funerary inspired architecture. The second wave (and largest) of Egyptian Revival happened during 1920’s after the discovery of King Tutankhamen (King Tut), which proved to be one of the most important archaeological finds in Egypt.  Jewelry trends fashioned with funerary collars, religious relics, and ethnic aesthetics became all the rage.
