In the Roman Period there was a revival in the mummification process in Egypt and mummies became ever more elaborate, with multi layers of bandaging in intricate patterns. Amulets were inserted between the bandages for the protection of the deceased in the afterlife and a complex bead network including these delicately made masks would be sewn to the bandages over the wrapped face of the mummy to give it a more lifelike appearance. This was not for the benefit of the relatives, however. Each night the soul of the deceased was supposed to leave the tomb in the form of a human headed bird, the 'Ba', and join the gods at the eternal circumpolar stars. The mask was so the soul of the deceased would recognise its body when it returned after journeying with the sun god through the twelve hours of the night.
