I think we’ve got totally different perspectives but I appreciate the post above. I find the walking sticks and seated plus chariot riding depictions interesting because the medical examinations of his mummy show why these were in his tomb. The medical evidence now re-enforces that they are representations of Tut, and although idealised and following artistic tradition have some truth.

I don’t buy that the tomb had any special meaning beyond what it is, except for the curious depiction of Ay, which is a piece of propaganda. The only people who will have seen it are close associates in the court - tombs were not on public display once the burial took place. KV63 included a kind of stand it is thought to enact the opening of the mouth ceremony, and we have to think how the tomb KV62 was filled. Presumably it was empty prior to the ceremony, then Tut placed in his coffins, then the shrines and covering fabric installed, then the burial chamber and side chamber filled with items prior to it being sealed. Then the antechamber and annexe were filled before the tomb was sealed. This must have taken days or even weeks?

The different headdresses inform about their identities

Why? Supporting documents?

Why? Supporting documents? Which would be ("their functionality")?

Lutz, thanks for the reference about the headdresses. I posted an explanation about functionality of the statues in a new topic (KV62 Sentinel Statues Functions Considered)

I fully respect your position. Please take a look at the topic (KV62 Sentinel Statues Functions Considered) for an initial explanation of what I am trying to help you recognize.
