Goddess Isis Protecting Tutankhamun's Shrine

The goddess Isis extends her arms in a protective gesture across one of the outer walls of Tutankhamun's canopic shrine. Three other guardian deities protected the shrine: Nephthys, Selket and Neith. Each of them was associated with one of the cardinal points of the compass. Within the canopic chest itself were four gold coffinettes, with the viscera of the pharaoh.
