The Golden Throne of King Tutankhamen
Description
The Golden Throne of King Tutankhamen, discovered in the Tomb of the King, by Howard Carter in November, 1922. made primarily of wood, not gold, though it is beautifully overlaid in sheet gold and silver, further adorned with semi-precious stones, glaze, and colored glass. The Throne follows the Amarna artistic tradition developed under Akhenaten, the Pharaoh that attempted to sway the nation to the worship of one god, the sun disc Aten. one of its most prominent features is the placement of Aten top and center of the seat, with its life-giving, sustaining rays extending as arms and hands down towards Tutankhamen and his queen Ankhesenamun.
