Resumo

Este trabalho teve como objectivo aprofundar o conhecimento sobre materiais e técnicas decorativas empregues num bastão de madeira decorado do rei Tutankhamon. Além disso, os autores estiveram interessados em usar uma metodologia desenvolvida para visualizar as decorações cilíndricas do bastão. As espécies botânicas de amostras da madeira e da casca foram identificadas pela observação de lâminas delgadas num microscópio óptico de luz transmitida; os materiais de decoração dispostos em camadas sobre a superfície de madeira foram analisados por técnicas analíticas e científicas incluindo microscopia óptica (OM), microscopia electrónica de varrimento ambiental (ESEM), espectroscopia de fluorescência de raios X (XRF), difracção de raios X (XRD) e espectroscopia de infravermelho com transformada de Fourier (FTIR). As análises forneceram novas informações sobre os materiais e técnicas de decoração que variaram ao longo do bastão. Este estudo é o primeiro passo na determinação dos materiais e técnicas de decoração usados para produzir este particular tipo de bastão durante o período do rei Tutankhamon.
