"Queen Hatshepsut was one of the most powerful women in Egypt. Making a bold movements, she placed herself as a true pharaoh and secured her position for more than 20 years. Her reign was marked by prosperity and wealth, and Hatshepsut ordered bold monuments to be erected, such as her mortuary temple of unique design and the biggest obelisk in Egypt at Karnak Temple.
This statue is a rare demonstration of all Hatshepsut's femininity, something unusual as she preferred to be represented as male, except for a thinner waist representation. Alabaster was a fine material in Ancient Egypt used for storing the vital organs of pharaohs and royal members before mummification. This material still is highly stemmed in the Middle East, known as Oriental Alabaster.
To produce a handmade alabaster sculpture copied from an original Ancient Egypt statue, the Alabaster passed through yellowing process and counted with the work of specialized Egyptian craftsmen. The result is a precious piece of art.
