The mummy of an unknown child from the 1st century AD. The small area of the headdress not covered by the bandages is filled with protective scenes of the Egyptian gods. The damaged area of the mask shows cartonnage construction technique, built up in layers of linen and plaster. (Photo courtesy of Marie Cox)
