The gold coffin of Tutankhamon Pictures

The gold coffin of Tutankhamon
The gold coffin of Tutankhamon is made of 450 pounds of solid gold. It is, perpaps, the finest and greatest example of goldsmithing work in history. Three coffins were used to hold the body of young king Tutankhamon who died at the age of 18. The inner and outer coffins are displayed among his collection in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. King Tut’s tomb was discovered on November 4, 1922 by Howard Carter, after six years of hard work underneath the rubble that heaped up during the excavation of King Ramses VI tomb, in Thebes, Valley of the Kings.
