Mummy-Bundle Masks: Part 2

Volunteer Heather Hoagland finished up those trays she was constructing, so now its time to put them to good use! Heather pulls the mummy-bundle masks out of their drawers, and places them on a new standard pre-cut piece of archival board. This provides extra support for the object and allows for easier access in the future. The board also prevents shifting in transit, as the pieces fit snugly between the Ethafoam bumpers.

Next, Hoagland wraps the object and its board in unbleached cotton muslin, with the number carefully written on it. Two mummy-bundle masks can fit side by side in each tray. She places them in their new box, and they are good to go. Great job, Heather!

  • Mummy-bundle mask, Peru, Ica Valley, Ocucaje, Cerro Uhle. TM 91.970. Acquired by George Hewitt Myers.

Émile Étienne Guimet (1836-1918) was a French industrialist, traveler and connoisseur who founded the Musée Guimet. He studied the religions of the Far East, and the museum contains many of the fruits of this expedition, including a fine collection of Japanese and Chinese porcelain and many objects relating not merely to the religions of the East but also to those of Ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome.
