The tomb of Samut, aka Kyky

The tomb of Samut, aka Kyky 






The goddess is seated under a richly decorated kiosk. (view gm_04) At the top of the roof is a frieze of cobra adorned with solar discs, which rests a coving, at the lower edge of which is a "traditional frieze" formed of a succession of coloured rectangles.

The tomb of Samut, aka Kyky
From the coving hangs a red and black banner. The small structure is supported by fine wooden papyriform columns, to which red ribbons are attached, flowing outwards. The umbels of papyrus are surmounted by a representation of the goddess Hathor: a woman's head with ears of a cow, her wig is crowned by the goddess's characteristic sistrum. A floral garland is stretched between the columns.
Mut is seated on the ancient square-shaped chair with a small backrest. She wears a blue-green skin-tight dress with two shoulder straps. She has bracelets on her wrists and arms, and a broad necklace around her neck.
On top of her long black hair she wears a headdress in the form of a vulture, which is her emblem. This is surmounted by the royal Double Crown, which shows pictorially the facts which Kyky declares (and which is inscribed in front of her): Mut is Mistress of the Heavens and Queen of the Gods.
In her hands, the goddess holds a papyriform sceptre, which is not specific to her, and an ankh-sign.
