Example text

Carter Archive, Index Cards 95b, 123-02 B, 12308, 123-10B; Burton photos p0032, p0033, p0043) Four rounded wooden bars, originally fitted with cylindrical bronze ends (see Index Card 123-08), were placed below the bottom of the canopy frame parallel to the sides and ends maintaining the same lengths as the inner corners of the frame. When found, only the two longer cross-bars appear to have survived and the longer of the two (Index Card 95b, Burton photos p0032, p0033) had lost its metal ends (figure 5).

PREVIOUS INTERPRETATIONS The excavators (Carter & Mace, 1923: 120; Carter Archive, Index Cards 123-11) described the object as a ‘traveling canopy’ or ‘portable pavilion’, supposed to have been set up when the king was to have an alfresco audience or when he wished to sit in the shade. The frame is described as missing its base. The few others who have commented on this object follow this interpretation as well (James, 2000: 294; Reeves, 1990: 187). At least two problems suggest themselves with regard to the reconstruction of this object and its presumed use.

Below these scenes are personifications of captured cities or regions, shown as human-headed name rings. There are six of these each for the north and the south, and the figures are rendered with the distinctive features of their region. At the bottom of the body interior are lines of bound prisoners, similar to those on the corresponding area on the chariot exterior. The central zone on the interior of the chariot is unfortunately very heavily damaged, but a smA-tAwi was certainly part of the original design.
