What a neat item for that Ancient Worlds lover. This is a wonderful Ancient Egyptian wooden burial mask also referred to as a mummy mask. This mask was fashioned from a single piece of wood. The mask shows a rather large face with wide nose and large almond shaped eyes. Please note that this mask merely Resembles the Great Pharaoh Akhenaten . The elongated narrow face is similar to the artistry seen of Akhenaten and 10th Dynasty art.The facial features have an almost proud and noble look. The condition of this is excellent with geusso applied to protect the wood and help the marvelous realistic paint adhere. The whole mask has been painted in life like colors. There is some cracking to the Geusso near the crown as shown.
