by AncientFan1 Queen Nefertiti: A Face to Remember
One of the best replicas made by Design Toscano, and the most important piece at the Neues Museum in Berlin, Nefertiti Bust portrays the image of an Egyptian Queen of the XVIII dynasty, wife of Akhenaten, the heretic pharaoh, and stepmother of Tutankhamen. The bust was discovered and smuggled out of Egypt in 1912, and it’s so famous and well done that some believe it’s a modern fake. No way, it’s genuine and it’s marvelous. The size of the original is 19 inches and has the left eye missing; its colors may have faded in more than 3,000 years buried in the sand. Design Toscano replicas are smaller, show both eyes and the colors are more vivid. You can find several pictures of the original bust and compare them to this replica. Examine the long neck, the chin, the eyes, the lips, and the blue cap crown adorned with the ankh. Despite the noted exceptions, the replica looks exactly as the original bust of Nefertiti, and that’s very, very rewarding. This replica is a masterpiece.

What a regal representation of Queen Nefertiti! I am so glad that I bought this piece. It looks perfect on my winged lion console, next to the Osiris/Isis sculpture and the Cleopatra sculpture. I am truly happy to have this piece in my collection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bluelightseeker Beautifully done restoration image.
No historical Egyptian collection would be complete without a bust of Nefertiti and King Tut. I bought both as a set and am very pleased. The Tutankhamun funery mask is a central visual focus of my collection and the Nefertiti statue graces its own prominent pedestal. I highly recommend these.

I used to live in Berlin, where you can see this bust on display. The product offered here is not accurate, nor the description. If that doesn't matter to you, you may well love this piece. I know I enjoy the exact reproduction I purchased in Berlin.
The differences: It was not made by Thutmose. The bust was found in an artisan's studio at Armarna. Either one of the jewels in one eye had not been placed, or were lost over time. So, an accurate reproduction has only one eye. ALso, the ears are chipped in the original, due to being in the sands of Armarna for centuries.
If you are not going for accuracy, then this would probably be for you.

This Queen Nefertiti Sculpture is beautifully crafted. I bought this along with the King Tut golden mask sculpture. Together they look beautiful on my shelf along with other Design Toscano Egyptian pieces I bought. Many people have complimented me on Queen Nefertiti in particular because of the detail and precision that went into making her replica. No wonder why her name means "The Beautiful One Has Come".
