A sarcophagus is a stone container that is the outer layer of protection for a royal mummy, with several layers of coffins nested inside. In early Egyptian times, most sarcophagi’ were undecorated and just consisted of a few simple carvings. However, as time moved on, they became more fashionable and soon had detailed carvings of humans.
Fabulous lifesize sarcophagus. Hinged, approx 186cm tall. In used condition. May show slight signs of use.
