Record Type: concept
mummy masks (<sculpture by subject type>, sculpture (visual works), ... Visual and Verbal Communication (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Masks painted on stucco, cartonnage, metal, or wood that were placed over the heads of mummies in order to preserve the facial features of the deceased. The painted features were idealized; in the Greek-Roman period they became more realistic. For the later flat Fayum portraits of Rome-occupied Egypt, use "mummy portraits."

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Beschilderde maskers uit stuc, karton, metaal of hout die op het hoofd van een mummie werden geplaatst. De oude Egyptenaren wouden zo de gelaatstrekken van de dode bewaren, die deze zou nodig hebben in het hiernamaals om te kunnen ademen, zien en eten. Deze gelaatstrekken waren ge├»dealiseerd; pas in de Grieks-Romeinse periode werden ze realistischer.
