child mummy

A very small boy from the Graeco-Roman Period of ancient Egypt, adorned with extensive gold leaf decoration on the face and body. The reason for this decoration is unknown. The child has fair hair and eyelashes, suggesting that he may be of foreign extraction rather than ancient Egyptian.
