This fantastic mask (shown below) was legally exported from Egypt in the early 1960's during a period when the Egyptian government was actually auctioning off tombs full of artifacts to the highest bidder, to be removed and exported at will. It then made its way legally through collections and auctions within the United States, until I was fortunate enough to purchase it back in 2006.
