Nefertiti bust is a painted stucco-coated limestone bust of Nefertiti, the Royal Wife of the Egyptian Pharaoh of Akhenaten who was well-known in Egypt for her beauty. She lived in Egypt in the 14th century B.C. and her name means “a beautiful woman has arrived”.

The work is believed to have been created around 1345 B.C. by the sculptor Thutmose, because it was found in his workshop in Egypt. It is one of the works of ancient Egypt that has been copied too many times. It is currently exhibited at the Neues Museum in Berlin.
