Decorating With Egyptian Masks

The rich history of Egypt and it's fascinating stories and culture, continues to fascinate people around the world because of the stories of people like Queen Nefertiti and Queen Cleopatra.

A big part of this fascination with Egyptian history is the role that Egyptian masks played in the culture in times past.

Tutankhuman's Gold Face Mask is a major draw at the Egyptian Museum at Cairo.

One way to bring alive the rich history of Egypt is to acquire Egyptian masks to hang throughout your home. Along with Egyptian themes and artifacts, you could live like a pharaoh.

The masks of Egypt come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and colors, depending on the use for the mask.

Many Egyptian masks were designed and used to honor the dead, from the royalty of Egypt right down to the pets.

Keep in mind, that if you decorate with these masks, you need to take into consideration the rest of the room. A large Egyptian mask hanging on a wall would probably be better served in a room that is open and under-decorated aside from the mask itself.

Smaller Egyptian masks can be used for decoration in rooms that are already well-decorated.
