tiny-librarian:


Black granite statue of Queen Nefertari: this fine female head has an incised text on the back pillar which gives the name and titles of Queen Nerfertari, wife of Ramses II. The queen is wearing a tripartite wig surmounted by double uraei. This piece appears to be part of a group statue, probably a dyad. Only the upper part of the statue is preserved. The top of the crown and the left edge of the back pillar are lost. There are no traces of colour.
