» One Of The World Famous Top 10 Sculpture – The Egyptian Museum of Berlin
Found in 1912 by Ludwig Borchardt, the limestone bust is estimated to have been created in 1345 BC. Credit is given to the sculptor, Thutmose, as it was found in his workshop in Amarna, Egypt. Nefertiti was the great royal wife of the Egyptian Pharaoh Akhenaten, and has become a cultural icon of beauty in the art world. The painted stone has been well preserved for thousands of years, but what sets it apart even more so, is that it is painted in layers of stucco plaster. This obviously helped in the level of preservation, but the concept that it was painted differently from other ancient portraits has raised questions about our understanding of ancient Egyptian art as a whole.
