|406||Halibut Hook Northwest Coast Native American
The Tlingit and Haida, indigenous peoples of the Northwest Coast (NWC), have used carved wooden hooks to catch halibut for centuries. As modern fishing technology crept into use, however, the old hooks practically disappeared from the sea. But they thrived on land—as decorative art.

|401||Mask Of The Konstanz Mummy
Mask of the Konstanz Mummy
Ptolemaic Dynasty: 305 BC - 30 BC
This mask, reassembled from many fragments, belongs to the mummy of the man in the coffin (pictured below) and originally covered his head. The gilded face symbolises the entrance of the dead into the divine sphere, since gold was considered by the Egyptians to be the flesh of the gods.
The hoop around the head, which was once covered with flowers, is a large, otherwise mostly lost, decoration. The surroundings of the mummy, such as masks and cartonnages, were supposed to protect the body from harm and enable the deceased's intact arrival in the afterlife.
Material: Wood, Ptolemaic period, 305 BC - 30 BC
Loan of the Rosgartenmuseums, Konstanz.
