The graceful Egyptian muse, whose name means "the beautiful woman has come," is expertly depicted in this famous replica bust. Nefertiti, the Great Royal Wife of Egyptian pharaoh Akhenaten, is believed to have been sculpted around 1345 BC by the sculptor Thutmose. A queen of Egypt who herself birthed two subsequent queens, Nefertiti reigns supreme as the royal who usurped kingly privileges to serve as priest to the god Aton. Cast in quality designer resin and painstakingly hand painted in the bright tones and accents of the Egyptian palette to highlight every detail. Our Design Toscano-exclusive is a treasured work of Egyptian art and makes a great gift for those who love Egyptology!
