The mask of Tutankhamun is a gold mask of the 18th-dynasty ancient Egyptian Pharaoh Tutankhamun who reigned 1334–1325 BC. It was discovered by Howard Carter in 1925 in tomb KV62 in the Valley of the Kings and is now housed in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. The death mask is one of the best-known works of art in the world and a prominent symbol of ancient and modern Egypt.

Bearing the likeness of Osiris, Egyptian god of the afterlife, it is 54 centimetres tall, weighs over 10 kilograms or 321.5 troy ounces, and is decorated with semi-precious stones. An ancient spell from the Book of the Dead is inscribed in hieroglyphs on the mask's shoulders.
