Tutankhamun's Gold Mask
The fabulous King Tut Mask was a death mask. Royal death masks or burial masks such as the fabulous death mask of Tutankhamun, the boy King Tut, were made of gold in the image of the deceased. The King Tut mask was used to cover the face of the mummy of the pharaoh and ensure that his spirit would be able to recognize the body.
Tutankhamun's gold death mask is probably the most famous artefact ever found in Egypt. Howard Carter described it as: 'a beautiful and unique specimen of ancient portraiture', which 'bears a sad but calm expression suggestive of youth prematurely overtaken by death.
