Although her life is poorly documented, the beautiful appearance of Akhenaten's consort Nefertiti has been made familiar by the haunting, colorfully painted bust excavated at Amarna in 1912. Also a biographer of Cleopatra and Tutankhamen, Joyce Tyldesley provides a history of the artwork, examining the evidence for its creator, manufacture, and purpose during the heretic pharaoh's reign more than three millennia ago. Illustrated with 8 pages of color photographs, this history then traces the sculpture's remarkable (and sometimes controversial) celebrity and cultural influence in the modern world.
