Cartonnage Mask of an Unknown Person 663-1-10
This mask portrays a man with an oval face and large eyes outlined with black eyebrows. The nose is relatively slim and the mouth is slightly wide with firm lips that separate the mustache and the thick painted black beard, which is linked to sideburns.

He wears a three-part wig with relatively long folds or flaps on the headdress that reach his shoulders and cover part of his wide, multicolored necklace.

Funerary masks were used in ancient Egypt to ensure that the owner's features were perfectly portrayed.
