A plaster bust of the famously beautiful ancient Egyptian queen, Nefertiti.

Made from gypsum plaster, this stunning home ornament is based on the 14th century bust of Nefertiti which can be seen in the Egyptian Museum of Berlin. Attributed to the sculptor Thutmose, the colourful original celebrates the ‘Great Royal Wife’ of the Egyptian pharaoh, Akhenaten. Nefertiti (1370-1330 BC) and her husband were known for dramatically revolutionising Egyptian worship, changing the religious landscape from a polytheistic to a monotheistic faith in which Aten was the only god permitted to be worshipped.

A regal gift for the home, inspired by the British Museum’s ancient Egyptian collection.
