Mummy Mask update: "claim of ownership is legally impossible"


I have commented before on the mummy mask acquired by the St Louis Art Museum (SLAM). Rick St Hilaire has a very useful discussion of the developing legal situation.

I was particularly amused by the due diligence search that included the Missouri Highway Patrol. No doubt officers were unable to confirm that they had seen a deceased Egyptian female driving a white pickup truck.

It appears that the import documentation for the mask has yet to be produced.
