Canopic coffinette from tomb of King Tutankhamun

Canopic coffinette from tomb of King Tutankhamun

This is a miniature version of the royal coffins containing the embalmed and wrapped viscera of the king. It takes the form of mummiform figure of the king in the nemes headcloth fronted by cobra of the north and vulture of the south. On the chin the curled beard of divinity and the hands grasp a crook and a flail symbols of royal authority. On the sides are figures of Wadjet and Nekhbet as birds, in the talons the goddesses hold shen rings. The coffinettes are adorned to look as if they are covered with feathers (rishi style). | Located in: Egyptian Museum, Cairo.
