Relics of the Nile is pleased to present this nicely-carved and detailed Egyptian wood mask. The facial features on the mask are expertly rendered with a detailed nose with nostrils and a serene expression carved on the lips. This is a rare example that would have been incorporated into the cartonnage wrappings of the mummy. During this time the deceased was wrapped in a full cartonnage encasement, however the face was carved of wood and sewn int the cartonnage. This is further evidenced by the small tang that sticks out below the chin with two holes used to attach the mask to the cartonange ensemble. The mask has been added to a custom shadow box-type frame and is ready for immediate display. The mask itself measures 6" in height and 4.5" in width. The size of the frame measures 16" x 14". Egypt, 22nd Dynasty, 945 - 712 B.C.. From the possession of a collector in Maryland.
