Jan 2014. Faces on Wood

After my wander around in Central Park, I met up with my friend, Katie, and wandered around the metropolitan museum. These faces were painted on wooden panels and were inserted into the mummies, as an indication to show what the deceased looked like. No Golden Mask like King Tut, these are in the post Grecian age of Egypt and some into the Roman Egyptian time.

but the paintings are just so lifelike. How exquisite. Look at the faces. They are so lifelike, hundreds of years later. The paintings of the boy are so lifelike....and the girl...gosh, one would fall in love with her.
