King Tut Egyptian Bronze Funeral Mask Bust After the Antique
Our modern bronze bust of King Tutankhamen, modeled after the original funeral mask, dates from the mid to late twentieth century and measures 17.5 by 9 by 7.5 inches. This is one of the more accurately modeled and finely cast reproductions of the pharoah's mask we have seen in our 20 years in business. The headdress features a vulture and snake at the top, symbolizing the unity of Upper and Lower Egypt, a broad collar with a lotus-bud border and falcon head terminals. In good condition, with some oxidation, rubbing wear, scratches and light signs of verdigris, consistent with age. Mounted on a carved pedestal with matte black finish, with some scratches, rubbing wear and a few small chip losses.
