Exhibition Highlights


This larger-than-life-size head combines the features of Tutankhamun with the braided beard and distinctive crown (now missing its twin plumes) that identify the god Amun. It probably belonged to one of the many huge statues of Amun made for the temple at Karnak during Tutankhamun's reign.
