Small Gilded Wooden Figure of Tutankhamun

Nothing in the dress or the accouterments of this gilded wooden figure of the king indicates its purpose. It is one of a pair from another shrine, both being similar in every respect except for the crown. In this figure the king wears the crown of Upper Egypt, a bead collar, a pleated kilt with apron, and sandals. In his hands are a flail and a long crook, made, like the sandals, of gilded bronze. The deep dip in the front of the girdle, revealing much of the abdomen, is a typical feature of the art of the Amarna period.
