Gold Face

By Artborghi @artborghi

Found enclosed in four tombs, sealed into 3 golden sarcophagi…

… he was the last of his family.

Son of an incest between his father Amenhotep IV and one of his sister. His half-sister wife, Ankhesenamun, couldn’t escape two consecutive stillbirths.

He died of malaria and genetic diseases.

His mommy rotted and didn’t survive his time. His name was Tutankhamun.
