Funeral mask

Tut2

The funeral mask of Tut'ankhamun was, like all of the many coffins in which his body was laid to rest, made in the traditional form of the god osiris, so that , through a kind of imitative magic, his body would be reanimated as Osiris had. This mask was made of gold with glass eyes and lapis lazuli eyebrows and eyelashes, the latter of which is identified with the sun god
