Description
Egyptian Museum Cairo. Dynasty XVII, 1347-1237 B.C. Egyptian. The boy pharaoh King Tut ruled Egypt for a very short time but his legacy lives on. The stunning death mask is probably the most famous work of art from the boy-king Tutankhamen's tomb. Discovered in 1922 by Howard Carter, the mask dates from 1325 BC. This marvelous mask of excellent workmanship protected the head of the mummy of Tutankhamun. Further protection was assured by a magic formula engraving on the shoulders and the back of the mask. The usual Nemes headdress knotted back at the nape of the neck, is a striped blue-greeen imitating lapis lazuli. The Uraeus and vulture head in gold inlaid with semiprecious stones and colored glass, ornaments the brow. The mask's eyes are made of obsidian and quartz with a touch of red at the corners: the cosmetic lines and the lids are of inlaid blue grass. The divine beard, plaited and turned up at the end, is of cloisonne work (colored glass held in a framework of gold.) The wide necklace collar is formed of rows of lapis lazuli, quartz, amazonite, and colored glass beads attached at each shoulder to a gold falcon's head ornamented with obsidian. This mask presents us with a beautiful albeit idealized portrait of the young King.

Made from designer resin with hand painted gold and color details, black base and measures 6.25" x 4.5".
Size (in): 6.25"H x 4.5"W
Weight (lbs): 4
