Box with Carved Scenes of Tutankhamun and His Queen

 

This wooden chest with colored ivory panels shows a seated King Tutankhamun facing a pond and shooting wildfowl and fish. The queen is sitting on a cushion with an arrow in her left hand waiting to pass it to the king.

On the lid, the king is seen with his queen Ankhesenamun, who is handing him bouquets of lotus and papyri. Flowers surround them.

From the Tomb of Tutankhamun (KV62), Valley of the Kings, West Thebes. Now in the Egyptian Museum, Cairo. JE 61477.
