LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art) brings us a bold whimsical back to school treat, the Egyptian Sarcophagus Backpack ($30). Little did we know that an Egyptian sarcophagus could be so cute ... the soft red plush sure doesn't hurt. This particular piece was inspired by the Egypt's 21st Dynasty (about 1070 - 945 B.C.) as represented in LACMA's permanent collection. Eccentric future history buffs will eat this thing up. Talk about show and tell.
