Throne footrest from tomb of King Tutankhamen

Throne footrest from tomb of King Tutankhamen

Footrest belonging to one of the thrones of King Tutankhamun was found with chair no. 350 in the southeast corner of the annex of his tomb. It is made of wood, gold, ivory, glass and precious stones. The footrest is engraved with nine bows which symbolize the traditional enemies of Egypt. In this instance, the enemies are depicted as African and Asian prisoners put to the ground and tied together with chains, with their hands tied behind their backs. They are wearing clothing characterizing each ethnic group. The King kept the enemies under his feet when he sat on the throne and placed his feet on the footrest.
