An Egyptian Wooden Mummy Mask
Egypt, Late Dynastic Period, ca. 650 to 300 BC. Wooden mummy mask made of cedar, carved into the form of a human face; once colored with vibrant pigments, now lost with time. Seven wooden dowels used to attach mask to the sarcophagus still present. Very striking to see how age and lack of moisture affects the shape of these fascinating items! 11"H. Custom stand.
Provenance: ex-C. Pipes Collection, Tennessee
