Product description

The Egyptian Museum in Berlin devotes an entire room to one of the most spectacular examples of Egyptian sculpture in existence: a limestone and stucco bust of Queen Nefertiti, created around 1340 BC by the court sculptor Thutmose, in whose studio Nefertiti herself stood as a model for the work. It was this bust that, upon its discovery in 1912, made the exceptionally beautiful queen the household name she is today. Celebrating the 100th anniversary of its discovery, this volume looks at the modern history of the bust. Dietrich Wildung, Director of the Egyptian Museum from 1989 to 2009, brings his decade of familiarity to bear upon this world-famous, 3,300-year-old sculpture, exploring its reception in twentieth-century art and literature.
