This is one of the couches of King Tutankhamun. It is in the form of the goddess Mehet-weret, the cow goddess of the sky whose name means “great flood.”
The two cow heads are surmounted by two horns flanking a solar disk. The eyes of the cows are inlaid with glass paste and the body is decorated with dark brown spots. The legs of the cows, which form the legs of the bed, are fixed to a rectangular wooden frame. The surface of the bed is made of fibers covered with a layer of stucco. The central panel is decorated with the Djed and the Ankh signs, which are covered with gold sheet.
From the tomb of Tutankhamun (KV62). Now in the Egyptian Museum, Cairo. JE 62013
