This highly unusual painting illustrates the elaborate rituals which accompanied the burial of Tutankhamun, the most famous of the Egyptian pharaohs. It pictures the moments which sealed off forever (so it was thought) the funeral chamber containing the precious artefacts in our picture, and the sacred mummy of Tutankhamun himself, wearing the fabled gold and enamel mask. Thousands of years later a man called Howard Carter would see a very similar scene.
