NEFERTITI



One of the most well-known works of ancient Egyptian art is the bust of Nefertiti (ca. 1370-1330 B.C.), wife of pharaoh Akhenaten.



When I spotted this tunic at the local Salvation Army, I immediately recognized the famous features.


Nefertiti and Akhenaten are noted in history for worshiping only one god: Aten, the sun disc.



The bust of Nefertiti that has given historians the most clear idea of her appearance was made by the sculptor Thutmose and now resides in the Neues Museum in Berlin.





A highly esteemed ruler, Nefertiti has become a symbol of ancient Egyptian art, as well as feminine authority. The name Nefertiti means "the beauty has come".



The bust itself is significant art historically because it represents the ancient Egyptians' realistic understanding of facial proportions. In the above relief of 1320-1200 BCE, also depicting Nefertiti, the more common stylized facial structure of ancient Egyptian art is evident.



I'm wearing a thrifted tunic made by "The African Scene" and a vintage necklace.
