Relics of the Nile is very pleased to present this superb ancient anthropoid sarcophagus lid. This piece hails from the New Kingdom and dates to the 19th/20th Dynasties (1307 and 1070 BC), the time of Ramses. The mask is very large, measuring 17" in height with a total display height (with secure display stand) of 21". The mask is much rarer than wooden or cartonnage masks and features tremendous color with detailed facial expressions including the eyes, nose, mouth, and ears. The piece remains in absolutely choice condition with only restoration to the top of the head, as is seen in the photograph. A very fine piece that is a perfect (and exceedingly rare) addition to any collection.
