<p>This replica of a sculptural fragment was originally part of a pair of statues showing a man and his wife seated side by side. The wig and dress are typical of a noblewoman of the New Kingdom, Ancient Egypt. <br /> <br /> Both the pleats in the dress and the thick strands of the wig are clearly visible in this sculpture, as is the jewellery. The dress, which would have been made from white linen, is elaborately pleated; in reality it would not have been as close fitting as it appears on the stylized sculpture. Ancient Egyptians often shaved their heads or had their hair cropped very short and wore intricate wigs instead. Around the neck is a beaded collar, probably a representation of one made from semi-precious stones like lapis, carnelian and turquoise, or glass paste (faience). The diadem placed on the head over the wig is patterned all the way around and has a lotus flower decoration at the front. This replica has been adapted from a mould of the limestone original which dates from the late 18th dynasty, around 1350 BC.</p>

Exclusive to the British Museum, a replica of an ancient Egyptian sculpture of a woman.

Made from hand-patinated resin, the sculpture represents part of what would originally have been a pair of statues showing a married couple seated side by side. The ornament is based on a mould taken from the limestone original, which dates to the late 18th Dynasty, around 1350 BC.

The woman’s wig and dress are typical of the noble statues of the New Kingdom in ancient Egypt. Astonishing details are clearly visible in the expertly crafted replica, including pleats in the woman’s dress, thick strands of her wig and her elaborate jewellery. The dress, which would have been made from white linen, is a stylised representation of the fashion of the day; in reality it would not have been so close fitting.

The woman’s jewellery includes a beaded collar, which likely represents an extravagant piece made from semi-precious stones, and a diadem on her wig which features a lotus design at the front.

This stunning replica will make an ideal gift for a lover of ancient Egyptian sculpture.
