The Sign of KIH-OSKHARUMBAYA statue – is the theme that unifies the different countries of Egypt, Arabia and India - and gives the story a relative coherence. Hergé would have been inspired by Yin and Yang when designing this memorable icon. As featured in vignette D5 on page 6 of Cigars of the Pharaoh.

The characters and objects in this series are taken from the poster Hergé created for the 1979 exhibition, Le Musée Imaginaire de Tintin.

“In June 1979 a major exhibition, which would later be hosted in other venues, was inaugurated at the Palais des Beaux Arts in Brussels. Hergé was not involved in the detail of the exhibition but the creators explained that the purpose was to put some of the objects that Tintin comes across in his adventures alongside the real objects that inspired them. On the poster he created for the exhibition Hergé drew his main characters in the middle of an imaginary display, the stuff of dreams for Tintin fans and collectors.”

Each object comes in a special box with a certificate of authenticity, this series is a Numbered Production.
