To produce this model of Tutankhamen's head, scientists analyzed X-rays of the mummy's skull, interpreted the facial features of modern-day people similar in age and ethnic background, then plugged the data into a computer program.
LONDON, Sept. 30 â€” A high-tech facial reconstruction has shed new light on the looks of King Tutankhamen, the teenage king of ancient Egypt immortalized for nearly a century by his golden death mask.
SCIENTISTS AND SPECIAL-EFFECTS artists in Britain and New Zealand used digital techniques applied in crime investigations to fashion a fiberglass model they say provides the closest possible likeness of the pharaohâ€™s looks.
The cast of Tutankhamenâ€™s head, which went on display for four weeks at Londonâ€™s Science Museum on Monday, bears little resemblance to his golden death mask.
Unlike the famous face of the slight, heavy-lipped youth framed in a pharaohâ€™s headdress, the model shows a wide-faced young man with high cheekbones, smaller eyes and a heavy brow.
