Greek Style Silver-Gilt Face Mask
Item Details
Description
An undated archaistic silver-gilt face mask, carefully modelled and pierced close to the edge for attachment. 42 grams, 22.5cm (8 3/4"). Acquired on the London art market in the late 1990s. The addition of a stephane, or tiara, would indicate that this is a deity. It is possible that the mask was attached to a cult object in a temple and used in the worship of the deity, such as an image that was transported around the town during religious processions.
