Paracas painted mummy mask             

 
 

 

 
Late Paracas painted mummy mask, Cerro Uhle, Ica Valley ca. 300-100 B.C.
 

Provenance:  Estate of Zero Mostel

Painted in blue and brown on a natural cotton ground with an anthropomorphic figure. Trophy headed, geometric serpents stream from the head and arms of the central figure. Within the central figure is an additional anthropomorphic figure. This figure with large circular eyes is thought to be the formative representation of the "Oculate Being" later more fully developed in the Paracas and Nazca style.

These mummy masks were stitched onto the outer layer of the mummy bundle to ward off evil spirits.

 

Price:  $7,500
