Coffin

Description
This coffin is crafted from a single piece of cedar and is covered in linen impregnated with plaster. Predominantly painted white, it has a figure with eyes that are partly made from volcanic glass and surrounded with bronze. Further down, “perfectly modelled” knees indicate that the coffin must have originally contained someone important – either the child of a pharaoh or the offspring of a government minister.
