This unusual mannequin or effigy of Tutankhamun is life-sized and shows his upper torso and head, but without any arms. It is made of wood, covered in plaster and painted, and it is a very life-like representation of the king.
The exact use of this figure is not certain, but it may have been used to display Tutankhamun's robes or necklaces and collars.
