Mummy mask


Mummy mask with a white face and black eyes and eyebrows. At the front, the wig is adorned with two Ba-birds and an udjat-eye on either side of the face. Below, Osiris and Sokar are depicted seated on thrones and facing each other. On the forehead, a headband retains an udjat-eye. A winged scarab and a vulture with out-stretched wings are depicted on the top of the head. The back is decorated with the falling strands of the knotted headband, adorned with two erect cobras. At the same height, two images of the goddess Nut protect an udjat-eye with their wings. Under the headband strands, an Osiris-djed is depicted wearing the atef-crown and bearing the crook (heqa-sceptre) and the flagellum (nekhakha-sceptre).
