1912 – The Nefertiti Bust is discovered
The Nefertiti Bust is a painted stucco-coated limestone bust of Nefertiti, the Great Royal Wife of Egyptian pharaoh Akhenaten.
A German archaeological team led by Ludwig Borchardt discovered the bust on the 6th December, 1912 in Thutmose’s workshop.
Thutmose, also known as “The King’s Favourite and Master of Works, was an Ancient Egyptian sculptor who flourished around 1350 BC.
The work is believed to have been crafted in 1345 B.C. by Thutmose because it was found in his workshop in Amarna, Egypt.
Nefertiti has become one of the most famous women of the ancient world and an icon of feminine beauty.
Extra Note: It is one of the most copied works of ancient Egypt.
