Why does nobody give a fuck about terrorism when non whites people are victims? if this was paris or bruxelles y'all will be talking about it for weeks, if this was the usa y'all will be talking about it for years. Honestly wtf why don’t you care about us? Why?
Fayum Mummy Portraits, dating from around 30 BC to the mid 3rd century AD.
The portrait heads were attached to Egyptian mummies of the Roman period, covering the faces of the deceased In the top pictures, you can see now they were bound to the mummy. Dating from the time of the Roman occupation of Egypt, they are closest to Graeco-Roman artistic traditions. Around 900 are known to survive and they are some of the only surviving evidence of Classical panel painting traditions. Due to their burial in hot, dry conditions with the bodies, many have survived in excellent condition.
The term Fayum comes from an area of graveyards (necropoli) where they were found in large numbers, buried in communal catacombs.
Painted on wooden board (and sometimes on cloth), either in encaustic (wax) or egg tempera.
