Mummy Mask of Khonsu

New Kingdom, Ramesside

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 126

Khonsu's mask was placed over the head and shoulders of his mummy. It is made of a wooden frame and cartonnage, a material made of plaster and linen. The shape is similar to the upper portions of Khonsu's inner coffin (86.1.2a, b). Other objects in the collection that were discovered in the same tomb can be viewed here.
