(Wordlkings) Top 100 treasures of the world - P82. The Golden Throne of Tutankhamun

02-07-2019

(Worldlkings.org) - The Golden Throne was discovered in 1922 by the British archeologist Howard Carter during excavations of the tomb of pharaoh Tutankhamun. The ancient Egyptian king reigned from 1330 to 1323 BC. His tomb was the only tomb in the Egyptian Valley of the Kings that wasn’t robbed.

 

The royal throne of Tutankhamun is a unique work of art. The luxurious armchair is distinguished by the complexity of its technique and an abundance of details. Its colors have not faded over three thousand years, which serves as a testament to the high skill of the ancient Egyptian craftsmen.

 

A multi-colored glass and precious stones were used to decorate the details of the ornament. The seat is lined with colorful plates of quartz, reminiscent of the Byzantine mosaic. Against the backdrop of the bright gold with which the throne is lined, the colors of the finishing look particularly chic.

 

A scene from the daily life of the pharaoh is depicted on the front of the throne: the young Tutankhamun sits in a relaxed pose, while his wife Ankhesenamun rubs her husband's shoulder with fragrance oils. If you look closely, you can spot a gold bracelet on Tutankhamun's left foot. His wife has the same jewelry on her right leg. In ancient Egypt, these bracelets were considered a symbol of betrothal.
