Death-mask of Tutankhamun.  I have had the privilege of seeing the mask up close and personal on three occasions:  twice when the Tut Collection was brought to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in the 1970s, then again in 1984, when my mother and I actually went to Egypt for a 10-day excursion,including the Egyptian Museum.  A truly remarkable and beautiful country.  The people were so kind, very sweet.
