    A small sculpture inspired by the mask of Tutankhamun - an ancient Egyptian pharaoh - in the British Museum. The sculpture measures approximately 19cm x 12cm and may be used a book end (it has one flat side).

    Tutankhamun's tomb, with contents including his burial mask, was discovered in November 1922 by the archaeologists Howard Carter and the fifth Earl of Carnarvon. This was one of the most important archaeological events of the century: Tutankhamun's tomb was the the only tomb dating from Egypt’s New Kingdom (c1550–1069 BC) to have been found substantially intact. The contents provided an unequalled insight into royal funerary practices, art and craftsmanship of the period. Tutankhamun's burial mask remains a popular symbol of this landmark discovery.

    Exclusive to the British Museum, this inspired piece is made in England by Revival Arts of Bath.
