Interesting People
at the Egyptian Museum

Nefertari

This statue of Nefertari, a favorite wife of Ramses II, is known as the White Queen.

Aknahton

And this is one of the few large intact statues of Aknaton, the "heretic" pharaoh, whose naturalistic  styles were much abhorred by his successors.

Seneb

The important dwarf Seneb was posed with his children standing below him, to minimize the depiction of his short legs.

Kaaper

Kaaper was a nobleman in the 5th Dynasty (very early). This statue is lifesize and marvelous, especially his eyes, which are of quartz and look like those in a china doll.

Scribe

The handsome Seated Scribe has the quartz eyes too.

and then there's Tut...
