One year later in 1953, the Egyptian Antiquities Service (Later Supreme Council of Antiquities) registered the funerary mask as Egyptian property in the official ledger book and deposited the object at the government storage, at Saqqara. The mask remained at Saqqara warehouse until 1959, when it had shipped along with other artifacts from Gonium’s excavation from storage at Saqqara to The Egyptian Museum in Cairo to be prepared for the planned travelling exhibtion to Tokyo in Japan that never fulfilled.

Continuation is a way to achieve unity when one element of the composition is connected, usually by a line or edge.
Numerous museums and art museums in the U.S. refer to the guidelines proposed by the Smithsonian and the accessibility checklist defined by the National Endowment for the Arts. The standards are followed for their exhibition and exhibited works. This is an expression of the willingness to provide quality service to all visitors and to actively reflect feedback provided by the visitors in their operation.
