Photograph by Edgar Aldrich PACKING TUTANKHAMEN'S DAY BED This remarkable piece of furniture has as its supporting sides two figures of Hathor, the mountain goddess, who came from her cave to the marshes and suckled the god Horus. The figures of the cow-goddess which support the couch are of cedar wood covered with beaten gold, with the conventional clover-leaf design in blue over their backs and sides. Between the curving horns is the lunar disk.
