Authentic Ancient Egyptian Mummy-Masks

All my Egyptian artifacts were legally exported from Egypt prior to the 1970 UNESCO treaty, and subsequent international trade laws regarding antiquities. The items are from old American and European collections and auctions.

This fantastic mask (shown below) was legally exported from Egypt in the early 1960's during a period when the Egyptian government was actually auctioning off tombs full of artifacts to the highest bidder, to be removed and exported at will. It then made its way legally through collections and auctions within the United States, until I was fortunate enough to purchase it back in 2006.



Ancient Egypt, Late Period, 664-535 BC. A small collection of fantastic mummy-bead masks. In colors of bright blue, green, yellow, black, white and red. High quality ancient beads, re-strung into original configuration to reveal a beautiful and vibrant face. The mask, representing the face of the deceased, would have been attached to the wrappings of the mummy over the facial area, as shown in the photo of an example at left. It depicts the deceased wearing the beard of Osiris, a symbol of his/her hope for reincarnation.
