Mycenaean gold death mask, Grave Cicle A, Mycenae, Greece. National Archaeological Museum of Athens. Grey Background


This death mask is typical of the other Mycenaean gold death masks fround in Grave V except in this mask the eyes are open. made from a sigle sheet of gold the shape of the face would have been hammered ot against wood. two holes either side of the gold mask allowed it to be held over the dead mans face. As weapons were found in the graves of Grave Circle A at Mycenae, those buried here wer warriors and maybe kings as the grave goods buried with them were of great value. 16th century BC .
