Although Tutankhamun may never have participated in any battle or even any hunting campaign, he was portrayed charging enemies from his chariot and hunting animals with bow and arrow.
There were many hunting and warfare objects found in the king's tomb, such as bows and arrows of different styles, bow-strings of twisted gut, a pair of slings of woven fabric, and parts of horn wrist protectors.
This bow case of Tutankhamun has faience extremities and is decorated on both back and front with hunting scenes embossed in sheet gold.
The king, riding in his chariot and accompanied by his hunting hounds, is aiming his arrows at ibex, or wild goats, and oryx, or African antelopes.
A hyena is also shown attacking a fallen gazelle.
Bands of hieroglyphs of royal names and epitaphs run around the edges.
