This Item is an Identical Museum Reproduction
This is an IDENTICAL MUSEUM REPRODUCTION in same dimensions from the original bust housed in the museum. This is the best and closest you can get to owning the Nefertiti masterpiece. A unique example of revolutionary art from the workshop of Thutmose at Amarna. Nefertiti was the wife of the legendary Pharaoh Akhenaton and the stepmother of Tutankhamen. The highlight of the Egyptian collection of teh National Museums, Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation, Berlin. Nefertiti (ca. 1370 BC - ca. 1330 BC) was the Great Royal Wife (chief consort) of the Egyptian Pharaoh Akhenaten. Nefertiti and her husband were known for a religious revolution, in which they started to worship one god only. This was Aten, or the sun disc. Nefertiti had many titles including Hereditary Princess (iryt-p`t), Great of Praises (wrt-hzwt), Lady of Grace (nbt-im3t), Sweet of Love (bnrt-mrwt), Lady of The Two Lands (nbt-t3wy), Main King's Wife, his beloved (hmt-niswt-'3t meryt.f), Great King's Wife, his beloved (hmt-niswt-wrt meryt.f), Lady of all Women (hnwt-hmwt-nbwt), and Mistress of Upper and Lower Egypt (hnwt-Shm'w-mhw). She was made famous by her bust, now in Berlin's Neues Museum, shown to the right. The bust is one of the most copied works of ancient Egypt. It was attributed to the sculptor Thutmose, and it was found in his workshop. The bust is notable for exemplifying the understanding Ancient Egyptians had regarding realistic facial proportions. Some scholars believe that Nefertiti ruled briefly after her husband's death and before the accession of Tutankhamun as Neferneferuaten, although this identification is a matter of ongoing debate.
Polymer is a heavy and very strong type of resin material that captures perfectly the details of the casting. The advantages of polymer when compared to concrete, cast stone, and cement are that it is far less fragile and much more resistant.
