Ivory and brown hand-woven cloth with decorative designs. Comes in a shadow box. Protective amulets and sometimes the deceased person's jewelry were placed between the layers of linen. At the same time, the linen was constantly brushed with sticky, liquid resin. This glued the bandages together and made them slowly stiffen as they dried. Around 15 days were set aside for the wrapping, the whole process accompanied by much prayer and ritual. Coptic Period.
