Fayum Portraits

Fayum mummy portraits are encaustic paintings made with hot wax onto wooden panels.

Dating from 1st – 3rd Century Roman Egypt, they are astonishingly life-like images of the deceased.

Painted in minute detail by a specialist craftsman, De Ferranti’s perfect recreations of Fayum portraits are available to special commission.
