Ibis Coffin

This elaborate ancient gilded ibis coffin contains a simple ibis mummy. Most coffins of this type have bronze heads and feet. Scientific testing suggests that the silver fittings seen here are quite likely modern replacements for original bronze fittings.

Wood, silver, gold leaf, gesso, rock crystal, animal remains (Glossy Ibis – Plegadis falcinellus, or an African Sacred Ibis – Threskiornis aethiopicus), linen and pigment.

Ptolemaic Period, ca. 305-30 BC. Now in the Brooklyn Museum.
