Painted wood hunting box from the tomb of King Tutankhamen
Painted wood box called a hunting box because of its decoration. Painted on the two long sides and the vaulted top of this chest are scenes of Tutankhamen slaughtering foreign enemies or hunting dangerous wild animals. On one side the king and his soldiers trample a horde of Nubian soldiers; on the other the enemies have Semitic features. In the hunt scenes the animals are lions, gazelles and wild asses, denizens of the desert savannah that bordered the Nile Valley. Inscriptions on the chest reinforce the image of the king as brave and strong, the slayer of all enemies.
