A group of extremely rare 9,000-year-old stone masks created in the Judean Hills and Desert are among the oldest such objects, as well as human portraits known to date. In 2014, following a decade of research into these mysterious masks, they were displayed in an internationally acclaimed exhibition at the Israel Museum to share the masks' importance and beauty with a global audience. This was the first time they had been displayed together in their birthplace.

This comprehensive catalog published by the Museum contains fascinating texts by experts in the field alongside dramatic photographs. This book offers a unique opportunity to discover the secrets of these powerful, magical and artistic stone faces.
