The newest thing in freak photography in Egypt is posing for photographs in cardboard sphinx molds and mummy cases. A hole is left where the inscrutable face of the sphinx should be, and, more impressionable American and English faces peer out from this vantage point upon the photographer. Exceptionally live mummy effects are made in the same way.
