Tutankhamun's mask

King Tut's mask

Mask Description:

The mask of Tutankhamun is a large, beautiful mask made out of high quality gold. The headdress and neckpiece is decorated with stripes of deep blue glass, precious gems and stones. The eyes themselves are made of obsidian (black volcanic glass) and quartz. The back is decorated with intricate hieroglyphics that were hand carved into the gold. The mask features two goddesses on his forehead- 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. The holes in the ears show that Tutankhamun, like many young Egyptian boys, wore earrings.
