The “Gold Throne” (Carter object no. 91; Cairo JE 62028) is one of the best-known objects from the tomb of Tutankhamun (KV62). It is also one of the more intriguing, since its backrest scene shows clear evidence of having been altered in antiquity. What were the nature and extent of these changes? And what light do they shed on the complexities of the later Amarna Period?
An art exhibition, Marking Time to a Changing Climate, is currently on display in the Bryant Bannister Tree-Ring Building; meet in the lobby for a guided tour of the art.
Note that the artists will describe their work after the tour in the Multipurpose Room (110) at noon.
