    About

    A mummy portrait of a bearded young man; Roman Egypt, AD 150-170,

    Tithe subject wears a white tunic with pink clavus, the seam below the shoulder shown as darker pink bands. Over the left shoulder is a white mantle. The dark brown hair is abundant and curly, with long whiskers in front of the ears, almost joined to a thin beard. Above the full red lips is a moustache. The facial hair, including the eyebrows, is painted in a lighter brown. The hazel eyes are large and rounded, with prominent upper lashes. The skin is painted in warm pinks and ambers, with thick strokes in a lighter shade.

    This type of portrait appeared in Egypt in the first century AD, and remained popular for around 200 years. Stylistically related to the tradition of Greco-Roman painting, but created for a typically Egyptian purpose — placed over mummy wrappings to show what the deceased had looked like - these are startlingly realistic portraits of people who lived 2,000 years ago.
