A special effects mummy mask from Stephen Sommers' 1999 action adventure The Mummy.
Mummies were raised from the dead by Imhotep to defend himself and keep Rick (Brendan Fraser) away from Evelyn (Rachel Weisz) while he tried to use her to resurrect Anck Su Namun (Patricia Velasquez). This head is made of foam latex and rubber, and hand-painted to look ancient and decayed. It is covered in brown fabric wrapping to simulate the burial bandages. It would have been placed over the actor's head and tightened with the Velcro inside the mask. A metal wire, covered in rubber, protrudes from the neck. The wire is used to control the jaw movement, although due to age the movement is minimal. ‘C.J. 2’ is handwritten in black marker inside the neck. The head comes on a custom-made display stand and has some wear from age and use, including flaking and cracking around the edges of the piece.
Materials: Rubber, Plastic, Ferrous Metals.
