Egyptian kings and gods
As well this original is in the Museum in Luxor. The Egyptian mural image shows Tutanchamun with Anubis, Ramses II and the goddess Isis.
Tutanchamun (originally Tutanchaton) was an anciently Egyptian king (pharaoh) of the 18th dynasty (New Empire), who ruled around 1332 to 1323 BC. He baden famous, when archeologist Howard Carter discovered his nearly to not plundered Grave in the Valley of Kings in year 1922.
Special about that pharaoh was not even, that his sarcophagus was out of gold and his golden death mask with the image of the pharaoh lying by the mummy, but that that mummy once as a child of nine years became pharaoh! Apparently he never really grew up. When he died, he probably was not older than 18 or 19. Many scientist claim, that Tutanhamun didnâ€™t really own any power, but was used by powerful people. Anyhow it is for sure, that because he became pharaoh more than 3000 years ago, that he his one of the most famous children of worldâ€™s history.
In the mural image of Antiquity as well is pictured the god Isis, next to king Ramses II. Isis was the known as the sister and wife of Osiris and as popular as him. Isis as well was the kingâ€™s mother of their common child, Horus. The image of Isis with spread wings is to see in the burial chamber, on the walls and coffins.
The mural image really is an extraordinarily decorating relief out of alabaster plaster of high quality, with ancient patina and a suspension.
