Malkata 1453 BC is a 1:12 scale representation by C. David Claudon of the bedroom of Tutankhamon in his father’s palace of Malkata. Each band of color in the room took about eight hours of handpainting. The royal uraeus around the bed stand are in relief by cutting notecard, gluing the strip, and then painting them. The wall decorations are in the Amarna style, and both the ceiling and floor are highly painted. The figure is by Cecil Boyd and I painted it. I sculpted and painted the cat with its faience collar. The metal statues came from Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
