Mummy Portrait 2 Of A Man Model 2 3D Model
Mummy Portrait of a Bearded Man
Place: Egypt Date: about A.D. 150–170
Medium: Encaustic on linden wood
Object Number: 74.AP.11
Dimensions: 37 × 21 cm (14 9/16 × 8 1/4 in.)
The man in this funerary portrait has tightly curled black hair, thick eyebrows, a beard and moustache. He is clad in a traditional white funerary tunic with red clavi (woven stripes). A mantle (pallium) is draped over his proper left shoulder; at its lower edge is an “H” pattern, possibly indicating the presence of an embroidery motif.
The portrait presents a superb example intrinsic to the encaustic technique. No ground layer exists, and the encaustic was applied directly to the wood.
The upper corners of the panel are roughly chopped at a slight diagonal leaving a straight edge between them. This type of cutting (as contrasted to the round tops associated with panels from Hawara) is linked to portraits from Er-Rubayat.
