Title Funerary Egyptian Masks - Graeco-Roman period Degree of recognition International Media name/outlet Australian Museum Blog Media type Web Country/Territory Australia Date 27/07/22 Description The Australian Museum acquired three cartonnage masks via subscription to the Egypt Exploration Fund.
Quite fragile compared to wooden coffins or stone sarcophagi, many cartonnage masks survived surprisingly well preserved for some millennia. They proliferated in the Greco-Roman period of Egyptian history and hundreds were recovered from ancient cemeteries. Relatively little research was completed on these funerary accessories but in recent times scholars have begun to show more interest, as is attested by a study conducted by Dr. Carlo Rindi Nuzzolo who examined our masks in April 2022.
