Description

Late Dynastic, 26th Dynasty, Ca. 664-525 BC.A wooden sarcophagus mask showing the frontal view of the idealised portrait of the deceased, the face is modelled with a cream-painted skin tone, long fake beard, the eyes almond in shape, heavy arched eyelids, outlined with bronze, the mouth with a gentle smile, which for the Egyptians held a symbolic belief that it would assist in a peaceful and solemn afterlife. The mask houses a rounded headdress which sits low on the forehead. The reverse flat, with holes for dowels connecting the mask to the coffin. The mummy mask was an essential part of burial and acted as protection but would also act as a substitute for the mummified head should it be lost or damaged. The Egyptians hoped to be able to continue their lives after death, through a strong belief in an afterlife. For this to be achieved, the deceased needed to be given a proper burial.The image of the deceased was essential to gain entry to the afterlife; Without eyes, the deceased will not see, without ears, the deceased is unable to hear the questions being ask, without a mouth the deceased is unable to say their name during the Final Judgment. Item comes with a professional historical report from Ancient Report Specialists.Size: L:420mm / W:260mm ; 2.05kgProvenance: From the collection of a London gentleman; formerly acquired in early 2000s; previously in 1970s UK collection
