Polished bronze hand mirrors were used to apply kohl, a black dye kept in a jar or pot, to line eyes and eyebrows. Besides being functional, mirrors developed religious and funerary uses. Their circular shape, brightness and reflective quality suggested to the Egyptians the face of the sun and its life giving powers and thus the mirror became a symbol of regeneration and vitality.

Cold cast bronze resin, 10" high.
