Fragment of mummy cartonnage
COFFIN/SARCOPHAGUS/CARTONNAGE
NEW KINGDOM
This fragment of mummy cartonnage, which dates from the New Kingdom, depicts the upper part of a standard on which a ram crowned with two feathers and a sun disk is standing. The sacred animal of the god Amun and the god Khnum formed part of the iconography of funerary equipment from the New Kingdom on.
