A hammered copper abstract mask with a dangling nose ornament and nacre shell eyes. White, mineral-based pigment covers much of the face, leaving the eyebrows, nose, mouth, and ears exposed - the white pigment is also textured from woven cloth being pressed into the surface over the ages, and pierced holes on the upper forehead and ear tabs are for affixing the visage to a mummy bundle.
