A tongue-shaped painted cartonnage panel with a central pair of gilded sandals with interlaced design, a tall decorated lotus between them; four rows to the bottom with red, yellow and green geometric decoration, one row with white, red and pink flowers; fabric to the reverse. 61 grams, 27.7cm (11"). Acquired on the London art market prior to 1980. Cartonnage is a material consisting of several layers of linen or papyrus pasted together, covered by a thin layer of plaster and painted. It became popular from the First Intermediate Period for use in funerary decoration on mummified bodies. It was used to make masks, pectoral panels and even full sized coffins. The pieces are painted with religious scenes to aid the deceased in reaching the afterlife safely.
