Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema, A Coign of Vantage, Collection of Ann and Gordon Getty

A pair of Tutankhamun’s sandals with pictures of his captured enemies on the sole. A Syrian and a Nubian or sub-Saharan native.

Sandals that belonged to Tutankhamun. The bottoms are decorated with images of bound captives from enemy nations, so that the Pharaoh would symbolically be stepping on and destroying his enemies when he walked.
