When Howard Carter discovered Tutankhamun's tomb he unearthed what has become the most famous mask in the world. Made in Tutankhamun's image, from two sheets of gold, the mask's profile shows a strong resemblance to his grandmother Queen Tiye. Its expression is sad but peaceful. The mask was decorated with bands of glass paste imitating lapis lazuli and adorned with semi-precious stones and glass. The emblems on the forehead (vulture and cobra) and on the shoulders (falcon heads) were symbols of the Two Lands of Upper and Lower Egypt and of divine authority. His eyes, made from quartz and obsidian, are outlined with lapis lazuli to give the effect of kohl eye paint.
