Ever since I was a kid I am fascinated by Egyptian artifacts. During my biz trip in Milan, Italy mid-part of this year, I was fortunate enough to have a "close" encounter with Egyptian artifacts as I went on a museum inside Castello Sforzesco, including a sarchopagi, a "real" mummy, an actual papyrus and this funeral mask that has a caption that it was from III-IV Century AD.
Luckily, I took the courage to take a pic of this artifact. I didn't risk taking shots of the mummy and the sarchopagi since from some of the notes that I have read that some of them has sort of "curse". Anyways, I posted this since it's timely for Halloween!
Happy Halloween everyone!
