Queen Nefertiti of ancient Egypt

Regular price $949.99

This is a stunning framed original water color painting on papyrus paper of the famous Egyptian queen in the period 1370 - 1330 BC.

This mesmerizing painting by the famous Egyptian painter Khaleel captures the image of the iconic bust of Nefertiti that is part of the Egyptian Museum of Berlin and displayed at the Neues Museum. The bust was discovered in 1912 by a German archaeological team and is said to be sculpted around 1345 BC by Thutmose.

The bust is 48 cm (19 in) tall and weighs about 20 kg (44 lbs).

Nefertiti was the wife of the Egyptian Pharaoh Akhenaten in the 14th-century BC. Her name means "the beautiful one has come forth" and she might have ruled as a pharaoh in her own right after her husband’s death. One of her daughters married King Tutankhamun, Nefertiti's stepson.

Her harmonic, balanced beauty and personality have been captured by the sculptor to make Nefertiti one of the most famous women of ancient times and a symbol of unparalleled beauty.
