This is my score from the PropStore’s live auction last month, it’s taken me this long to get my camera and take some nice photos of him!

The auction catalogue lists him as:
Screaming Mummy Head
MUMMY, THE (1999)

A screaming mummy head from Stephen Sommers' action-adventure The Mummy (1999). Imhotep (Arnold Vosloo) resurrected his priests to attack Rick O'Connell (Brendan Fraser) during the climax of the film. As O'Connell defeated his adversaries, dismembered mummy body parts fell to the floor.

Made of foam, the head has a brown and black paint finish resembling decayed bone and rotting flesh. Bound in aged strips of calico, the face features a screaming expression with exposed sections showing rubber 'flesh' membranes inside. Distressed for use on the production, the foam head is missing a section on the back of the skull. Dimensions: 25 cm x 17 cm x 31 cm (10'' x 6 3/4'' x 12 1/4'')
He’s going to get a bell jar to live, which is something the Victorians like to do with the heads (and sometimes hands) of the mummies they acquired. I also have a museum curator who wants to borrow him for an upcoming exhibition, but more on that when it's all finalised...
