This Egyptian terracotta sarcophagus mask has a serene gaze of a soft earthy red colour. It preserves numerous traces of polychromy and on the back, the holes can be seen in which the wooden plugs were inserted to attach it to the box or sarcophagus, which was then covered with stucco to cover the cracks, and finally polychromed. The indentations of the craftsman’s hand on the back are preserved.
