Head of Queen Hatshepsut

Queen Hatshepsut is the most famous female ruler of ancient Egypt. This head, which is one of the masterpieces of Eighteenth Dynasty sculpture, is part of a statue that once represented the queen in the shape of the god Osiris
-------------

The head, made out of painted limestone, bears all her distinctive feminine features: the gently curved eyebrows, the wide eyes extended by cosmetic lines, the delicate aquiline nose, the full cheeks, and the gracious mouth.
Dimensions: Height 61 cm Width 55 cm

Thank you for your comments!
Queen Hatshepsut was my favorite. I love the temple Senmut built for her. It blends into the landscape so beautifully.
I think she ruled as Pharoah too, for awhile.
Have a super day!
