The beautiful one has come. Indeed.
Nefertiti's real face found?
Even after 3300 years we can't leave her alone. She's one of the great beauties of history, and her sculpted head exerts a power over modern man that few can rival. Sadly I've never gotten to Berlin to see her, but even in photo form she is beautiful to behold. No wonder her titles include "Heiress, Great of Favours, Possessed of Charm, Exuding Happiness, Mistress of Sweetness, beloved one, soothing the king's heart in his house, soft-spoken in all, Mistress of Upper and Lower Egypt, Great King's Wife, whom he loves, Lady of the Two Lands, Nefertiti'". Yeah, any wonder why Akhenaten (Amenhotep IV) is considered the author of many of the Bible's songs of love and wonder in the Old Testament? What man on the planet would describe his wife in such a way in this day and age?
Anyhoo, the folks in Berlin believe they may have found Nefertiti's 'real' face on the limestone bust. It's a very interesting though that in ancient Egypt you never died as long as someone remembered you. Considering the millions that know her face and name today, millenia after her disappearance from Egyptian history, one would be inclined to say the ancients had it right.
