No, the mask is in excellent shape, including the inscription. That link I posted for it shows the translation, albeit in German. I have it in English at home but I don't think anyone is so interested in it that I'd have to sit here and type out all of it, right?

Right? Please? I mean, I'm really a slow typer. Shocked

Dont worry kmt_sesh, I dont think there are really mean people in this forum who would make you type out the translation. Although I am curious as to what is the mask says Rolling Eyes
Anyway if you're a slow typer, how come you seem to reply to the posts in this forum pretty quick? Idea

Oh, I don't do the typing. I make my Nubian love slave do that. She can type 400 words a minute...properly motivated. Twisted Evil

All right, that's a lie. I can type pretty fast if it's just coming from my head, but I slow waaaaaay down when I'm typing something from a book or magazine. This is why I'd rather not type out the translation to Tut's mask. I'm sure it's out there in English somewhere on the Web.

That's right, you haven't been introduced to my Nubian love slave. Her name is...um, her name is...

Well, I can't remember her name, but she's very motivated. Very Happy

Could someone give more info on King Tut's mask and what some of the inscriptions say?

How about this one:-

Despite the phenomenal quality of workmanship in the mask, it has been noted that the face and nemes headress have been joined really quite crudely (rather than made in one complete piece).

This has lead to speculation that, like many other items of funerary equipment, the mask may not have originally been made for Tutankhamen ie the original owners face was removed and his inserted. Bets on the original owner?......... Cool
