Funerary mask of a boy with Greek features, which is demonstrated in the hairstyle and the face. Dry climate in Middle and Upper Egypt helped to preserve a countless number of such masks and papyrus.

Many masks were found in good condition, in locations such as Hermopolis Magna (Tuna al Gabal) and Antinopolis (Al Sheikh Ibada). Only head and neck are illustrated in such masks. There were masks for the whole body, others for the upper part of the body, and for the hands and feet and so on. There were masks on laying mummies and others in vertical position.
