2: Choice cartonnage mask from a sarcophagus

Lot 0002
A choice Late Period cartonnage "mask" from a sarcophagus, c. 664 - 332 BC, with deep red-brown color, part of the headdress in golden yellow with black and white cosmetic details. The eyes are very large and almond-shaped, nose prominent and lips pursed. Intact, stabilized with wood on the inside, the outside coated with a light varnish, probably over 50 years ago. A very attractive piece and much scarcer in cartonnage than solid wood. H: 10 7/8" (27.8 cm). Ex San Francisco Collection.
