Chest of Tutankhamun

In the shape of a cartouche, this gilded wood chest from King Tutankhamun's tomb is inlaid with ivory, ebony, and various colored pastes. A cartouche is an oval figure enclosing a sovereign's name.

The exhibition is on display from November 4, 2004, through May 1, 2005, at the Kunst- und Ausstellungshalle (Art and Exhibition Hall of the Federal Republic of Germany) in Bonn, Germany (more on the exhibition).
