Bust of King Tutankhamun as the god Nefertem

Bust of King Tutankhamun as the god Nefertem

Wood sculpture bust, which is carved in the Amarna style, then plastered and painted in life like colors, represents the King Tutankhamun as the god Nefertem, incarnation of the sun god at dawn. The head rises from a lotus blossom and was thus symbolic of resurrection and rebirth. The bust was found at the entrance to the tomb of King Tutankhamun.
