OFFERED HERE IS A MAGNIFICENT, HUGE, & GENUINE ANCIENT EGYPTIAN FRAGMENT OF CARTONNAGE CUT FROM A MUMMY/SARCOPHAGUS, LATE PERIOD CIRCA 500 BC, MADE FROM HANDWOVEN LINEN COVERED WITH PLASTER AND PAINTED DESIGNS. THE CARTONNAGE FRAGMENT FEATURES A SUPERB PAINTED IMAGE OF ANKH WITH SEATED GODS OR ATTENDANTS BELOW, ONE ON THE LEFT HOLDING A TOOL (PERHAPS RELATED TO THE OPENING OF THE MOUTH CEREMONY?). THE IMAGES ARE FRAMED ABOVE AND BELOW BY PAINTED RECTANGULAR DESIGNS IN RED, BLUE, AND GREEN. THE CARTONNAGE FRAGMENT IS CURVED IN OUTLINE AND ONE SIDE IS FLAT AND SMOOTH, SO WE BELIEVE THIS TO BE THE ARM SECTION AND BASE OF THE TOP OF THE SARCOPHAGUS LID.
