When checking again this thread I just noticed that my post and neseret`s second post have crossed each other. Therefore my remarks on the gold coverings are somewhat outdated.
BTW, with "so the story seems to be true" I did not mean to say that I support Reeve`s theory that the goldmask was first made for a female.
I only wanted to say that there really were gold coverings/studs applied to the holes in the earlobes at some point.

We would say in Brazil: "Neseret mata a cobra e mostra o pau" (She kills the snake and shows the stick which killed it). Well done! Smile

KV-63 sounds like a very exciting find.

I find the whole concept of embalming caches and the associated reasons for having them so interesting!

Also that wooden frame does look very interesting- even more so if it was involved in the opening of the mouth ritual!

And i have also read there were pillows found in this tomb! I wonder what they look like and were made of?!

It seems like the burial rituals of AE are much more elaborate than first thought!

AE truely was an exotic place!

I saw this photo almost twenty years ago but have never been able to relocate it, but it may have bearing on this topic of the mask and ear piercings. This old Youtube video at 34:14min shows what has to be a Burton photo of Tutankhamen's face with ears intact and obvious ear piercings. Can anyone locate this photo?

The Burton-Photos are (almost complete) online :

" The Griffith Institute - Tutankhamun: Anatomy of an Excavation - The Howard Carter Archives - Photographs by Harry Burton ".

" P0805 " is the first in a series of detailed shots of the mummy's head.

Greetings, Lutz.

While the Griffith Institute has Burton images of Tutankhamen's head, it does not publish this particular image, with the ears intact. This is the only image that I can find with ears intact. I feel that it must be a slightly earlier image or that the ears collapsed while being photographed. I cannot find any place where this image is now published.

How about " Burton Photo. No. P0809 " ?

If it necessarily has to be this one special, then you should probably ask the Griffith Institute. If it exists, then they should have it, I suppose ...

Its not the same image but it shows the intact ear to better advantage. Thank you for locating this. This is proof that men of the 18th dynasty did have pieced ears.

That was already clear for some time before KV 62 was found. The mummy of Thutmosis IV has also pierced earlobes...

I would say Reeves in his statement thinks more about the "ideal image" of the king, so his portrayal in the sacral state art, for example, on the walls of the temple?

Greetings, Lutz.
