THE WORLD FAMOUS GOLD COFFINETTE
Gold Inlaid Canopic Coffinette of Tutankhamun dedicated to Imseti and Isis
During the mummification process, Tutankhamun’s organs were removed, individually wrapped in linen bandages, and laid in four miniature coffinettes.
These coffins were then placed inside a stunning alabaster box kept in a golden canopic shrine. These coffinettes held the king’s liver and was protected by the goddess Isis and Imseti, one of the four sons of the god Horus.
