THE TOMB OF QALHATA, KU 5

In the centre of the wall Queen Qalhata is shown holding the hands, as with Tanutamen, of the children of Horus, who guide and watch over her.
Qalhata wears the golden headdress typical of the royal Kushite mothers of the 25th Dynasty. It represents a vulture which envelops her head entirely. It is still possible to see that the painter changed his mind about the positional level of the head of the bird. Her neck and wrists are decorated by a necklace and bracelets of gold. The queen is dressed of an ample dress of white linen, the sleeves extending fairly low on the forearms.
