Mask



I have the perfect piece for this topic. It's a piece I did for my art exam at high school...oooh, more years ago than I care to remember - but the subject is King Tutankhamun's funerary mask and tomb items. Because I am a nerd, I had drew items which were actually found in the tomb with King Tut.

Unfortunately, I framed the piece a few years ago, so I got my husband to take a photo of it in its frame. He had to slope the picture backwards so as not to appear in the reflection. So it doesn't quite do justice to the piece. It was done in oil pastel.

Tut's mask was always a source of great admiration for me.
Good job.

Your rendering is gorgeous, the many earthly items the young king took with him I think add some fun to the piece.
Very nice!

I like this piece very much. I am also much inspired by Egyptian things.
