Stucco Portrait Panel from a Mummy of a Woman. Roman Egypt, c. 2nd century AD. The image nearly that of half torso length, with the hands resting over the hips. Her tunic with twin parallel applied borders in pink-red, against the cloth in brown -- and typical for the time period. Woman with smooth stylized features and nicely rendered large eyes. A ring and snake bracelets are seen at her hands, with a multi-strand pendant necklace at her throat. Reassembled from several large pieces, with very modest restoration and paint touch up. Because the stucco shell is thin and fragile, the backside of the piece has been built up with a reinforcing layer of plaster. Height: 14". A very fetching display piece.
Estimated Value $12,500 - 14,500.
