The amulet represents the god Ptah as a mummiform figure, wearing a straight beard and an unusual headdress. His hands emerge from the shroud to hold the djed pillar, the emblem of the god Osiris. This figure is set within a decorated gold shrine with a suspension loop on the roof, so that the piece could be worn like an amulet.
This chest with colored ivory panels shows Tutankhamun, on the short (front) side, sitting and shooting wildfowl and fish, and his wife sits at his legs. On the lid, the queen is giving the king bouquets of lotus and of papyri.
Two of King Tutankhamun's enemies are represented on the cane. The first one is a hairy Asian whose hands, face, and feet are made of ivory to imitate his white skin. The second enemy is an African whose face and limbs are made of ebony that simulates his dark skin.
The wheel was known in ancient Egypt as early as the Old Kingdom, but the horse-drawn chariot was introduced much later by the Hyksos. This one, found in Tutankhamun's tomb, was decorated with fine gilded motifs.
In the tomb of Princess Ita, wife of Amenemhat the second, this dagger was found in her coffin, together with a collection of jewels that included bracelets, anklets a necklace, and the remains of a belt. The form of the blade is Phoenician in origin, and the patterns on the handle were common in Crete. It has been suggested that the dagger was imported from Byblos in Phoenicia or from Crete, or was manufactured in Egypt by a foreign craftsman at the royal court.
