Lid of a canopic jar found in tomb KV 55 in the Valley of the Kings
Canopic jar found with other artifacts in tomb number KV 55 , called Amarna Cachette, in the Valley of the Kings at Luxor. This canopic vase has a human head for the lid. The facial features are claimed by some to be of Meritaten and by others of Kiyain the shape of Kiya herself. Many scholars believe that Kiya was the mother of King Tutankhamen. The facial features on the lid of the canopic vase are a splendid example of Amarna art exported to Thebes.
