He jumped into action when a teacher asked the third grader if his engineer father could build one Egyptian Tomb or sarcophagus for teaching.

Richard said: “I thought I might give it a good try.”

In the evening, after Alexander had gone to bed, he made the bowl – out of foam boards, polystyrene and papier-mâché.

Then he decorated it with Tutankhamun as a suggestion.

He said, “The mummified pharaoh inside was a Halloween prop that I built out with more styrofoam and pipe fittings before using paper mache on the head.”

But trouble was brewing when he dyed the bandages with tea.

He recalled, “Apart from the house smelling like a tea merchant’s, once we washed the tea smell out of them, they were almost back to their normal color.”

However, the result delighted Alexander’s classmates and teachers at Lancaster’s Moorside Primary School.

Richard laughed, “It turned out better than I thought it would.”

It’s back home now, but he will offer it to other schools as “it seems too good to hide in a basement”.
