Lord Carnarvon, the sponsor of Howard Carter’s search for Tutankhamun, called it “one of the most marvellous pieces of furniture ever discovered.”
This is the back of Tutankhamun's golden "throne", from his tomb in the Valley of the Kings.
Acclaimed photographer, Sandro Vannini, and Dr. Zahi Hawass have generously allowed readers of Nile Magazine to be wowed by the stunning photography in their new book, "The Legend of Tutankhamun".
One of the images featured in the current Nile Magazine is this gilded chair, which speaks of the transition back to orthodoxy from the revolutionary religion of light pursued by Tutankhamun’s father, Akhenaten.
Although inscriptions on the front of the throne name “Tutankhamun” and “Ankhesenamun,” on the back, the old “Aten” forms of their names still appear.
