In 1912, the bust of Nefertiti was discovered in Egypt by German archaeologist Ludwig borhart. He wrote in his diary: “when this colored statue was dug up, it had the most vivid art in Egypt. It was almost intact, except for a touch off the ear and a defect in the left eye. The application of color was so advanced that it could not be described, and all the words were superfluous.”
The bust of Nefertiti is 47cm high and weighs about 20kg. No organic materials are used, so the damage is very small. The pupil of the character’s right eye is inlaid with black natural crystal, the eye white is chalk rock, and the eye socket is sealed with beeswax. The whole statue consists of six colors: gray, yellow, green, black, white and skin color. Today, I collected some Nefertiti tattoos. I hope these tattoos can let you know the beauty of Nefertiti.
