Reading a Mummy Mask

Reading a Mummy Mask

The Art Institute of Chicago has a bunch of interactive features on their website. You can learn about Grecian vases, wooden pillows, a West African headdress, or a suit of steel armor. It’s a fun way to spend a few minutes. After all, we have a bunch of time these days. Amirite?

Take a look at this Egyptian Mummy Mask. It has an Eye of Horus (he lost his eye to his Uncle Seth), an amulet to a crocodile-headed monster, and did I mention it contained a MUMMY!!! Sometimes learning is fun.
