Many of King Tut's belongings have been on tour around the world since their discovery, but 19 items that were taken from his tomb are set to be returned to Egypt in 2011.

Currently, the artifacts are being kept at the Met in New York City. The objects are small in size, ranging from a sphinx bracelet to a three-quarter-inch-high bronze dog. The 19 pieces will become a part of a permanent collection at the Grand Egyptian Museum where a number of King Tut's items are already on display.

"Thanks to the generosity and ethical behavior of the Met, these 19 objects from the tomb of Tutankhamun can now be reunited with the other treasures of the boy king," Egypt antiquities chief Zahi Hawass told NPR.

In 2009, the Egyptian government severed ties with France's Lourve museum for holding onto five ancient murals, which have since been returned. Although individuals who discovered artifacts were previously allowed to claim them, the Egyptian government has since changed its stance.

Artist jobs are predicted to increase by 12 percent over the next eight years, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
