Title: Mummy Portrait of a Youth Artist/Maker: Unknown Culture: Romano-Egyptian Place: Egypt (Place created) Date: A.D. 150–200 Medium: Encaustic on linen wood Object Number: 78.AP.262 Dimensions: 20.3 × 13 cm (8 × 5 1/8 in.) the boy wears a small round container for amulets on a plain black necklace, possibly made from leather. His head has been almost completely shaved to feature a single lock at the back (with golden clip) and two small tufts on his brow. This pattern is in accordance with the practices of devotees of the goddess Isis, whose son the god-child Horus was the model for this hair treatment. The encaustic is painted directly on the wooden panel. Brush marks are visible in the wax and a pointed tool was used to create the eyelashes and black outline of the eyelid. Provenance: Galerie Nefer (Zurich, Switzerland), sold to the J. Paul Getty Museum, 1978.
