Caption: Fayum mummy portrait from Roman Egypt, titled 'Portrait of a Layman'. This style of funeral portrait dates from the 1st to 3rd centuries AD. The first examples were found in 1887 in the Fayum Basin by an expedition led by British archaeologist and Egyptologist Flinders Petrie. They are made by an encaustic technique, combining wax and melted paints. Photographed at the State Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts, Moscow, Russia.
