Alabaster Canopic Chest of TutankhamenYour model is disabled. For more details go to Edit properties3D Model
Canopic Chest of Tutankhamen in the Egyptian Museum, Cairo. The main chest and lid is carved from alabaster. Each of the heads is a seperate carved piece and form “stoppers” for each of four internal, carved depressions. These depressions housed small inlaid gold coffinettes each of which contained a mummified packet each containing either the stomach, lungs, intenstines, or liver. The sledge is wood covered in gold leaf.
Created from 169 images (Canon EOS Rebel T5i) using Metashape 1.6.1 and Blender 3D 2.8. The gold covered wooden sledge was fixed/recreated in Blender as was the cavetto molding and lower portion of the lid. Further, the 4 metal staples each on the lid, chest, and sledge were all recreated in Blender. The front left human headed stopper was created by duplicating the rear right one in Blender.
A version of this object as it is actually displayed in the Egyptian Museum can be seen here.
