The golden mask includes a royal headdress with a necklace of 3 branches, a false beard and a necklace on the chest, and in the forefront of which is a cobra snake to protect the young pharaoh in this other world, other than two holes in the ears.  The mask is made of pure gold, as a reflection of the symbol of the color of the sun and its association with funeral rites and resurrection in the afterlife.  - The gold that the mask is made of, has been treated in a perfect manner and color gradations that formed a breakthrough in the history of jewelry in the ancient era, especially with the delicate and rare details of the mask.  The mask design is unique and not duplicated in the rest of the royal coffins that have been discovered previously.  The mask is among the treasures of the tomb of the young pharaoh Tutankhamun, in which 5,398 artifacts were found, including clothes, jewelry, furniture, weapons, chariots and a throne chair.
