    1 of 7   Next >>
This reconstruction of King Tutankhamun's face was made by one of the worlds leading anthropological sculptors, Elisabeth Daynjs of Paris. She used a skull "map" made by French forensic anthropologist Jean-Noel Vignal, of the Centre Technique de la Gendarmerie Nationale, who based his work on hundreds of CT scans of the mummy.

The reconstruction of the pharaoh's face is documented in the June 2005 issue of National Geographic magazine and in an upcoming National Geographic Channel Special, King Tuts Final Secret, airing in the U.S. Sunday, May 15, at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
