Artist's Description

Also known as the “Silver Pharaoh” because of his beautiful silver coffin. Inside was an exquisitely understated beaten gold death mask with the same recognisable features of the Dynasty XXI king. Unfortunately the moist conditions in his burial town of Tanis were not friendly to his mummy. He died at an old age with arthritis and a badly infected tooth, but his mask shows him as he wished to spend eternity: smiling gently, forever youthful.

Date: 2013
