Vayakam Melech Chadash Al Mitzrayim

Using CT scans of his mummy, three separate teams of scientists have created computerized facial reconstructions of King Tut. The reconstructions are similar to each other, and to a golden mask he wore into the crypt, as well as other ancient portraits.

Check out the Wired article here.

Also, others have said this before, but check out his eyes:

This is likely the pshat in Shir HaShirim 1:15:

טו הִנָּךְ יָפָה רַעְיָתִי, הִנָּךְ יָפָה עֵינַיִךְ יוֹנִים. 15 Behold, thou art fair, my love; behold, thou art fair; thine eyes are as doves.
That is, each eye is painted to look like a dove.
