Ancient Egyptian Cartonnage Mummy Masks
Mummy mask covered the face of the mummy made out of linen and gesso with traces of dark green, gold, black, orange and red paint. According to the conventions of Egyptian style, the eyes of a Mummy mask are given special emphasis and are rendered as large full almond shape, clearly outlined. Above them are heavily painted brows that aid in drawing attention to the eyes below. The head and torso were the most significant element of the cartonnage as they protected the most vital areas of the deceased. Ptolemaic. Very rare and unusual.
