Daily Times, Dubai United Arab Emirates:- The Egyptologist, Professor Joan Fletcher, in his book "Valley of the Kings: The Egyptian Golden Age", dealt with an important element that scholars and researchers did not pay attention to over the past years, which is represented by the ears of the Egyptian pharaoh, Tutankhamun.

The British newspaper "Express" quoted Fletcher as saying: "Tutankhamun's mask is an example of ancient Egypt, very familiar, but like many of its treasures, it holds a great secret."

He added: "I visited the Oxford University's Griffith Institute to examine the most detailed records of his burial, and the photographs taken by Carter's photographer at every stage of the 10-year excavation."

He continued, "The pharaoh's mask caught my attention, a feature that has been overlooked until now, namely pierced ears."

He explained, "Research indicates that Tutankhamun did not wear earrings after his childhood, so when he died at the age of twenty, he was not supposed to be depicted with pierced ears."

He went on to indicate: "The mask may have been made for another pharaoh, or for a figure of a high degree of importance, and not for Tutankhamun.

By comparing the gold used in the manufacture of the face, it turned out that it is different from that used in the rest of the parts, and there is a visible welding line on the mask.”

Fletcher concluded his "theory" by saying: "The features of Tutankhamun's face were installed on the mask of a previous pharaoh or a pharaoh that may have been Nefertiti, due to the presence of pierced ears."

There is little information available about Nefertiti since scholars found a statue of her in Amarna, and their failure to reveal the location of her tomb so far.
