Tutankhamun's Gold Mask
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.
Tutankhamun wears on his forehead two goddesses - Nekhbet, the vulture goddess of Upper Egypt, and Wadjet, the cobra goddess of Lower Egypt - protecting him, and showing that he is ruler of both kingdoms. On his chin is the false beard worn by pharaohs on important occasions.
