Golden Throne of Tutankhamun
The throne of Tutankhamun is made of wood, covered with gold and silver, and ornamented with semi-precious stones and colored glass. Two projecting lions’ heads protect the seat of the throne while the arms take the form of winged serpents wearing the double crown of Egypt and guarding the names of the king.
It was discovered in the Antechamber of the tomb of Tutankhamun (KV62) beneath the Hippopotamus funerary bed. The throne is called (“Ist”) in ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphs after the name of the mother goddess Isis, who was usually depicted bearing a throne on her head as her characteristic emblem. Now in the Egyptian Museum, Cairo. JE 62028
