No "maybe" about it - Akhenaten was indeed the father of Tutankhamun - been there, done that. Thank you, Marty :)

it was the belief that if you destroyed the mouth and eyes of a carving that this would prevent the person from seeing or speaking in the afterlife. when restored they were giving life back.
