Egyptian Mummy
Belfast Museum


This is a reconstruction drawing of how the coffin of
Nesyamun might originally have appeared. The cracks have been smoothed over and the beard and amulets restored to their rightful positions. The effect is intended to recall the illustrations made by Napoleon's surveyors in the 'Description of Egypt'. by Thomas Small

This coffin, shaped like a baboon, once contained the remains of a baboon as an offering to the god Thoth. Walters Art Museum, Baltimore
In the shape of a baboon, this coffin (now empty) contained the mummified animal intended as an offering to the god Thoth. Revered for his wisdom, Thoth was believed to be the inventor of speech and calculation and was patron of scribes. The baboon was one of his sacred incarnations. Made separately, the front and back of the coffin have four holes for pegs to join them.
