AE087 Tutankhamun’s Monument
This large, carved monument was based on the actual design of the heavy, solid gold ‘death mask’ placed over the head and shoulders of the mummy containing the remains of Tutankhamun in the central burial chamber of his tomb.
Measuring in height, 10 3/4” (27.4cm) and with a width of 7 1/8” (18cm) this highly detailed polystone sculpture incorporates a doorway at its base decorated with Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics.
Placed as the centre piece of any Egyptian collection it makes the perfect dramatic backdrop for many different historical periods in Egypt’s turbulent and exotic past.
This unusual and unique display piece was inspired by the story of the tomb’s discovery and perhaps a dash of the golden age of Hollywood…
