This marvelous mask of excellent craftsmanship protected the head of the mummy of Tutankhamen. Further protection was assured by a magic formula engraved on the shoulders and the back of the mask. The headdress knotted back at the nape of the neck, and is striped blue-green. The mask's eyes are made of obsidian and quartz with a touch of red at the corners: the cosmetic lines and the lids are of inlaid blue glass. The divine beard, plaited and turned up at the end, is made of colored glass held in a framework of gold. The necklace collar is made of rows of lapis lazuli, quartz, amazonite and colored glass beads attached at each shoulder. This mask presents us with a beautiful portrait of the young King.
