Egypian coffins - Silver Coffin of King Psusennes the First

 The lid of this silver mummy-shaped coffin portrays King Psusennes the First as a mummy with his arms crossed over his chest holding the flail and the scepter.  There is a solid gold uraeus, or royal cobra, on his forehead to protect him. The face is decorated with a band of gold across the forehead; the eyes are inlaid with colored glass paste.


On the chest and abdomen there are representations of three birds with outspread wings, grasping the Shen signs of eternity. The rest of the coffin lid is decorated with long feathers. Images of Isis and Nephthys are shown on the lid at the level of the feet.
