Scenic and floral print on cotton. Bayley and Craven. Manchester, England. December 14, 1883.
The Great Royal Wife Tiye, matriarch of the Amarna Dynasty. Photo courtesy of the Altes Museum in Berlin, Germany. Yew Wood with gold, silver, alabaster, and lapis lazuli with a wig of linen and plaster. 3 3/4” high.
(According to Gardener’s Art through the Ages, apparently ” the choice of dark yew wood for Tiye’s portrait had no racial implication.” I cannot even comprehend that level of douchery.)
How could I ever forget about Queen Tiye’s imitation hair headdress. Seriously you guys need to check out side view of this bust, it’s so much like an natural hair.
“ It’s the 12th edition! I reread it and it stated that ‘scholars argued that the choice of dark yew wood for Tiye’s portrait had no racial implication,” which I guess is only slightly less douchey. ”
