One of the breathtaking artifacts found in Tutankhamun’s tomb is his golden throne made of gilded wood and decorated with colored glass and semi-precious stones.
Most likely, this piece represents Horus, the falcon-headed deity of power and kingship.
This fan originally held ostrich feathers attached to it.
The object is made of gilded wood inlayed with carnelian, obsidian, and colored glass.
Its small size indicates that it was used by Tutankhamun when he was a child.
This example represents the king wearing a khepresh or blue crown, the headdress associated with war.
Usually made from wood, the chariots were found with accessories.
