Early 20th Century Cast Plaster Head of Pharoh

About

This life-size cast plaster head of a Pharoh was made in the first quarter of the 20th century. While the discovery by Howard Carter of the undisturbed tomb of King Tut in 1922 certainly led to Egyptian fever, Egyptology and an interest in the Nile valley's culture has a history almost as long as that of Egypt its self. France and England have very old collections of artifacts and antiquities that span back to formidable collectors several hundred years ago and plaster casts of these items have been made for almost as long. This old casting is most likely from France and is in good shape with a fine patina and craquelure to the finished surface which gives the piece a certain patina that only adds to its visual appeal. Designed to hang and resemble an actual artifact the piece has a built-in device for this purpose and is easy to display.
