The entry room

The entry room

Objects in the antechamber of Tutankhamen’s tomb. This was the room Howard Carter first entered. Notice the two statues at the back, facing each other. These are the guardians of the royal tomb, and the discolouration on the wall between them is the entrance to the burial chamber.
