Some people think it’s Nefertiti or one of her daughters Meritaton or Anchesenpaaton?
Although the eye liner and lipstick are faint in color, I still love ancient make-up. Simply beautiful.
Head of a statue of Queen Merit-Aton?
Gift of James Simon, 1920.
Egyptian Museum in the Altes Museum.
Eventhough this statue is unfinished it represents a masterpiece of late Amarna art with the characteristic almond shaped eyes, soft full lips lightly coloured red and the soft modelling of the face. The plinth on top of the head was originally covered by a separately work crown, the main indication that here a queen is represented. Possible Nefertiti herself is shown. or one of her daughters Meritaton or Anchesenpaaton married to Semenchkare and Tutankhamen respectively.
