Pectoral of the Sky Goddess Nut

This pectoral was found in the chapel of Anubis within the tomb; it shows the goddess Nut in human form with her wings and arms outstretched, protecting the cartouches of Tutankhamun. Below her wings can be seen eight rows of hieroglyphs, again related to protection by the gods. 

The pectoral is surmounted by a cavetto cornice. It has been argued by some scholars that this piece was not originally made for Tutankhamun, as the cartouches show signs of having been altered. Made out of gold, carnelian and colored glass. 

From the Tomb of Tutankhamun (KV62), Valley of the Kings, West Thebes. Now in the Egyptian Museum, Cairo. JE 61944
