Cartonnage Collar Restored

A team led by Susan Redford has found (in hundreds of pieces) a cartonnage collar from a mummy at Thebes. Her team has laboriously put the collar back together.

The collar is a painted imitation of a "Weshekh" collar. A "real" collar of this type would have been made of beads and would have been every bit as colorful as this painted imitation is. For more details on this find, take a look at this article.
