Mummy Mask of the Black Queen Kay-Neferwy

New Kingdom, 19th Dynasty, ca. 1292-1189 BC. Materials: Wood, Gold, Glass, Linen, Resin.

From Al-Jizah, Giza. Now in the Saint Louis Art Museum. 19:1998

The mask of Kay-neferwy has an extraordinary presence with its combination of glass inlaid eyes, gilt face with shimmering, almost lifelike translucence 

The craftsman who fashioned the wig out of thick resin carefully cut and modelled the plaits of hair in the latest style
