The Nefertiti Bust is a 3300-year-old painted limestone bust of Nefertiti, the Great Royal Wife of the Egyptian Pharaoh Akhenaten. It is believed to have been crafted in 1345 BC by the sculptor Thutmose.
The statue shown in this image is Cleopatra VII who was an Egyptian queen. She was considered as the last "Pharaoh of Egypt" during the Ptolemaic Dynasty (332-30 BC). The Black basalt statue is one of the best-preserved images of a Ptolemaic queen. She is wearing a wig with many braids and holding a cornucopia. The figure is clearly Egyptian in style, though with Greek attributes (knotted dress). The front of the headdress is decorated with a uraeus, the symbol of Egyptian royalty.
