Sarcophago di Amenhotep II : Iside

Detail of Isis The sarcophagus is located in the burial chamber and made of red quartzite. The goddess Isis is represented at the foot of the sarcophagus while Naphtis is at the head. Both are represented on the nbw sign indicating gold. The yellow paint is reminiscent not only of the golden skin of the deities but also of the so-called Chamber of Gold, the name generally used to indicate the burial chamber.
