Here is the famous funerary mask found in the tomb with King Tutankhamun — better known as King Tut — an Egyptian pharaoh from the 18th dynasty, who ruled from around 1332 to 1323 BCE. (Find out more about King Tut here!)

The original mask was made of solid gold, and weighed more than 20 pounds. The vulture and the cobra on the top of the mask (above the eyebrows) represented Upper and Lower Egypt.
