Inside the tomb, a stairway entrance led to a narrow passageway equipped with an antechamber, an adjacent annex, a burial chamber, and a storage room filled with vast treasures. Painted a glittering shade of gold, the walls of the burial chamber are ornately decorated with illustrations of Egyptian deities. Gold shrines feature scenes showing how to safely navigate to the afterlife whether by land or sea; magic oars meant to safely ferry the king to eternity were left nearby. Small figurines facing north, east, south, and west accompany an inscribed spell “to repel the enemy of Osiris (the deceased), in whatsoever form he may come”—an incantation that seems to have worked, for the sarcophagus was left untouched for over 3,000 years. Upon opening the sarcophagus, Carter found a golden effigy of the boy king containing three gilded coffins—nested together—that encased the well-preserved mummy.
