Sarcophagus Lid

featured image

I was so busy looking at the detail of this scupture that I forgot to record who the person was. When I searched for it online, I only found a single reference, which states that it is a sarcophgus lid for 'Vizier Sisebek' from the 26th Dynasty.

The carving is smooth and the face seems to look into eternity. Everything is polished to perfection. I wonder who did this work, how long did it take and what tools did they use?
