My version of the famous Nefertiti bust discovered in 1912 by archeologist Ludwig Borchardt at Tell-el-Amarna (site of Akhenaten’s new city).
___________________________________________________________
In 1912, excavations by archeologist Ludwig Borchardt at Tell-el-Amarna – the site of Akhenaten’s new capital city, Akhetaten, which was abandoned soon after his death – unearthed the workshop of the pharaoh’s favourite sculptor, Thutmose. Among several unfinished works and busts found at the site – including a set of plaster heads of members of the royal family that were presumably used as models for stone sculptures – was a bust of Nefertiti rendered in painted limestone, and finished but for the left eye. This piece, one of the most celebrated of all surviving artworks of the New Kingdom, has secured for Thutmose a modern-day reputation as a master sculptor.

I paint around the styles. When I do commissions I find that my style changes. Therefore the last painted artwork will be the style I adopt for the next few paintings I do. It has all to do with the impression the painting I finished, left on me.

My interests are varied. Why not visit my Pinterest Profile & see what I like.
