Original Artifact : Maschera Funeraria (Funeral Mask)
Funeral masks were crafted in silver laminate and was an Etruscan (Italy's first civilization) funerary ritual in which a mold was taken from the deceased’s face. Occasionally, these masks were used to form a visual ancestral-portrait of the family, other times they were worn at funerals to impersonate and celebrate the deceased. Death masks were typically only made for persons of high stature.
