Mask

Mask
During the Late Period, the upper level of Pay's tomb-chambers was reused for the interment of numerous poor mummies. Some pottery vessels date these burials to the Saite Period, between the late 7th and the early 6th centuries BC. Several of these mummies must have been covered with bead nets, since thousands of faience cylinder and ring beads were retrieved from the fill of the burial-chambers. Such bead-nets often comprised certain amulets, and indeed a number of sca...rabs and figurines has been found as well. Among these objects was this beautiful mask, found in six pieces which were dispersed all over the tomb. The oval mask has threading holes along its circumference so that it could be integrated into a bead net. The features are indicated in raised relief with accents in black glaze. Although cloth or stucco masks are fairly common, no parallels for this object are known.
