Tutankhamun was buried with a number of images of his divinised self. Although fragments of similar statues have been found in other tombs in the Valley of the Kings, the treatment of the images in KV 62 allows possible insights into their ritual functions. The tomb statuary is compared with those pieces depicting Tutankhamun from Karnak in attempt to interpret their overall meaning for the cult of the king.
