This mural commemorates King Tut, the nine year old "Boy Pharaoh" who ascended to the throne 3,300 years ago. The mural was designed by 17-year-old Bobby Zabin, who was particularly inspired by King Tut's emergence as a young leader. "It's important that people know how devoted ancient civilizations were to their kings," said Zabin, of Roslindale. "I hope this mural reflects similar devotion to the great painters of Ancient Egypt."
The mural was painted and brought to life by a group of youth artists employed by the City of Boston's Department of Youth Employment's SuccessLink program, together with adult artists employed under the Boston Parks Department, including: Aiyanna Canty, Aminah Yahya, Bobby Zabin, Camila Aguilera-Steinert, Eli Swanson, Emmett Hughes, Heidi Schork, Inez Bendavid-Val, Jamar Joseph, Jerome Jones, Kayla Depina, Laniya Harding, Liz O'Brien, Lucy Edelstein-Rosenberg, Maia Poremba, Madalen Bigsby-Licht, Nalani Reid, Niamh Mulligan, Tony Depina, Xavier James, Xzavier Santiago, and Zariyah Wilkerson.

The mural provides a long-lasting learning experience for those passing by in a neighborhood where the arts flourish. In collaboration with Beyond King Tut: The Immersive Experience, the mural project provided a valuable opportunity for local teenage leaders of The Mayor's Mural Crew to explore and depict the story of a teenager who led as a king in ancient Egypt.
The mural can be found a block away from SoWa's Power Station, where Beyond King Tut: The Immersive Experience is open through Sunday, October 2, 2022.
