Ancient Eyptian Relief of a Queen

Another exquisite example of a sculptor’s teaching aid. It depicts the profile of a queen, identified by the vulture headdress, believed to be from the Ptolemaic Kingdom.

The original “displays the almost incredible fact that the top six rows of curls just below the ear have been drilled from below with a drill about one sixty-fourth of an inch in diameter. The rest of the curls and all of the broad collar except the top row of beads remain unfinished…”* however, future casts of the piece, including our own, have gradually lost those intricacies along the way.

The original is currently exhibited in the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
