The Statue of Tutankhamun Wearing the Red Crown
This statue represents King Tutankhamun standing with his left leg forward. He is wearing the Red Crown of Lower Egypt adorned with the royal cobra (uraeus) at the front, the Usekh collar, a short pleated kilt, and a pair of sandals.
In his left hand, he is holding a long Heqa scepter with the top missing and in the right hand, the Nekhekh flail. This depiction of King Tutankhamun with the long neck, the swollen belly, and the low hips was clearly influenced by the art of the Amarna Period.
