Tutankhamun funerary bed Representing Goddess Mht


This wooden bed is covered with gilded plaster designed to represent two elongated lionesses. The two lionesses represent the goddess Mehet. Her eyes are inlaid with rock crystal; the tears and the nose are inlaid with blue glass or faience.

We should mention here the confusion that happened with the names of this goddess and the cow goddess from the first bed.
