Sarcophagus (Coffin) of King Tutankhamun with small King Tut inside.
The sarcophagus of King Tutankhamun held his three coffins, one inside the other. Symbolism for magical purposes was an important feature of the Egyptian funerary regalia. The decoration of this sarcophagus is dominated by the four tutelary deities carved in high relief. At each corner the graceful figures of the four goddesses: Selket, Isis, Nephthys, and Neith are depicted with wings outspread and arms circling the sarcophagus as if to keep away intruders, protecting the body of the king. Complete with hieroglyphics, this magnificent replica captures the fine detailed beauty of the original.
