This finely carved figure by Bazzanti, epitomises the romantic historicist style popular in the last quarter of the 19th century. The figure of the Pharaoh’s daughter is identified by her striking and finely modelled headdress. The vulture headdress became an attribute of Egyptian royal women in the Old Kingdom, originally linking the queen with Nekhbet, the tutelary goddess of Upper Egypt, and came to underscore the divinity of queenship.
Height 230.00 cm (90.55 inches)
