THE ANTICHAMBER OF
TUTANKHAMEN'S TREASURE HOUSE
motifs predominate in the funerary equipment found in the antechamber
of Tutankhamens treasure house. The ornamental wooden
chest below is decorated with a lively painting of the pharaoh,
in a horse-drawn chariot, shooting deadly arrows at his enemies.
The stuccoed and gilded funerary couch above is carved to resemble
two animals bodies; each terminates in the head of a fierce
lioness (above right).
