I saw the King Tut exhibit when it was in New Orleans in 1975 (I believe). I know I was in 7th grade. I was wondering, what exactly is King Tut's sarcophagus holding. A staff? and ?

:D

I know what you mean! His sarcophagus looks intriguing. I mean, how often do you see a coffin made of gold? But to answer your question, it did not have a staff. Instead, it has one of the world’s most precious art pieces—king tut’s death mask.

Tell me, did you see the new king tut exhibit by National Geographic? :wink:

His golden body-shaped coffin was wrapped in the wings of the goddess, his arms were crossed over his chest, and he held the so-called "crook and flail",
thought to be a fly whisk and a shepard's stick, or crook.
There was no staff.

I have also heard that the flail is a device for collecting resin from plants. I do not know what plant or exactly how it worked - but a crook & flail could symbolise the 2 aspects of farming - livstock & arable.
