Thutmose III Reconstruction

Thutmose III Reconstruction

Pharaoh Thutmose III (1481-1425 BC) started out a co-regent and general for his stepmother Hatshepsut, but he is best known as the Napolean of ancient Egypt for extensive military conquests stretching from northern Syria all the way to Nubia (now Sudan).

My primary reference for this reconstruction was his mummy’s skull, but my decision to give him a large aquiline nose and long goatee reflects his statuary. He came out looking rather like certain old photos I’ve seen of Rwandan Tutsi who sometimes feature the same nose shape.
