This golden funeral maks was part of the goods discovered in a grave in 2004, during archaeological excavations on the Svetitsata mound near the village of Kran in the Stara Zagora region. A noble Tracian man, aged about fourty, was buried in the grave. According to a local burial rite - usually associated with the Orphism - his body had been dismembered, the grave receiving only fragments from the skull and his legs. 

The golden mask weighs 673 grams and images the face of an adult man, with clearly portrayed individual features. It was cast and additionally processed by forging and chiseling. The portrait is dated to the 5th century BC and, so far, the only mask of this kind from this period in Thrace and the Mediterranean area.
