Sculpture of head of Tutankhamun emerging from lotus flower

Sculpture of head of Tutankhamun emerging from lotus flower

Carved of wood then plastered and painted in life-like colors, it represents the king 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. | Located in: Egyptian Museum, Cairo.
