About "Ancient Egypt: Nefertari"

Acrylic painting on A4 size Medium Texture Artist Canvas Sheet (primed) [0x1] 330 GSM. Size: 21cm x 29.5cm

PART OF A SERIES OF FAMOUS ANCIENT EGYPTIAN PEOPLE

_______
This is a painting of Nefertari, favourite queen (1300 [0x1] 1250 BC) of Pharaoh Rameses II (1279 [0x1] 1213 BC). When her burial tomb was dicovered in the Valley of the Queens in 1904, it was described as the most beautiful tomb ever, by Italian Egyptologist Ernesto Schiaparelli. The tomb (or hypogeum) was built on the scale of a pharaoh[0x1]s tomb, decorated with paintings of astonishing beauty.
_____
I added a cartouche and some hieroglyphics that was found in her tomb, on the right of her image in the painting. Some info about the cartouche: Like the body, the ba (soul), the ka (life force) and the shadow, the name, was regarded as an essential element of every individual. It had to be included in the deceased[0x1]s tomb to ensure survival in the afterlife. Nefertari[0x1]s name (enclosed in the royal cartouche), took the form of a statement: [0x1]beloved of Mut[0x1].
