Graeco-Roman Mummy Masks

In the Graeco-Roman Period, mummy masks were often made of cartonnage and highly decorated. Sometimes these consisted of separate body and head pieces, with the head piece being helmet-like. At other times the mask and body were formed of one piece. We have several in the Egypt Centre. These include:

W917 A Graeco-Roman helmet-style mask

W918 A Graeco-Roman helmet-style mask

W919 A Graeco-Roman helmet-style mask

W920 a Ptolemaic mummy mask with Book of the Dead 151a upon it.

W922 and W923 Full body cartonnage pieces from Deir el-Bahri
