Unknown Portrait on Linden Wood – Curator’s Label

small reverse place created     magical confidence of high adult
shaved with golden pointed tool     white narrow amulets
black lock of woven leather     rare brush marks     encaustic mantle
customary visible injury container in black resin
single wax eyelashes     purple spells staining white wrappings
devotee of proper left & proper right     goddess     quickly finished

A found poem using words from the website entry for Mummy Portrait of Youth at the J Paul Getty Museum
