A charming masterpiece made especially for Tutankhamun's fans and those who value the sacred Egyptian art! The Head of Nefertem, also known as the Head from the Lotus Bloom, was found in the tomb of Tutankhamun in the Valley of the Kings in West Thebes. It depicts the head of the young Pharaoh Tutankhamun emerging from a green lotus bloom, symbolizing healing and regeneration. The sculpture depicts the Pharaoh in the guise of Nefertem, the god of the dawning sun. The child-god Nefertem springs from a green lotus, which was associated with the revival of the Sun in the morning because its buds close at night and reopen at dawn. The green base of the bust symbolises the primordial waters from which the sun rose at the beginning of creation. The Pharaoh was closely associated with the Sun, but the depiction of him in the guise of this particular solar deity was meant to magically guarantee that the Pharaoh would be reborn once more, just as the Sun is reborn at dawn.
