Nefertiti's Eyes

A lovely description of what happened when the first tomb after King Tut in 1922 was opened. They determined that the distinctive features of the Queen as shown in the image below became the norm rather than the previously shown way.


She is beautiful, look at those eyes and that neck! I can stand there for hours talking to her, she does indeed talk to me! :)

I noticed some years ago the exotic eyes of Nefertiti, but came to a different conclusion than the archaeologists. I thought at the time that it was rather catlike, and that she had painted her already beautiful eyes to reflect her love of cats, which were considered sacred in ancient Egypt. Just a thought.
