      Is this the true face of Tut? This silicone-skinned bust is billed as the most accurate forensic reconstruction ever of ancient Egypt's Pharaoh Tutankhamun. It was based on recent 3-D CT scans of the mummy of the "boy king," who is believed to have been about 19 when he died some 3,300 years ago.

      The facial reconstruction of King Tutankhamun ("Tut"), whose famous sarcophagus traveled far more than the “boy king” did in his 19-year lifetime, shows he had buckteeth, a receding chin, and a slim nose, according to 3D renderings of his mummy. His weird skull shape is just within range of normal and was probably genetic—his father, Akhenaten, had a similarly shaped head. Tut’s body also had a broken leg, indicating he may have died from falling off a horse or chariot.

    This statue depicts an Egyptian man that is wearing a Schenti (a wrapped skirt around the waist), a decorated apron, possible gold bracelets and armlets, a wesekh collar (a decorated, traditional rounded collar), sandals, no evident hair or makeup, and a uraeus headpiece (a headdress with a cobra). It can be assumed that this man is in the upper part of the Egyptian social status, possibly as a court official or a noble.
