More museum photos (sorry- just can't help myself!). Egyptian museum in Berlin

The well famous and most beautiful bust of Queen Nefertiti.

Another Nefertiti. The sculptors got the news that she had died before they could finish it, so threw it on the workshop schapheap where it was found by some lucky bugger thousands of years later! The block on top of her head is where they would have fitted her crown, which they worked on separately.

This is the beautiful ceiling of the Greek and Roman section of the museum.
