Nefertiti Greets You

Nefertiti Greets You

Nefertiti was never my favorite Egyptian queen, especially since she associated with the Pharaoh who practically brought the 18th dynasty down from its glory days (Akhenaten). But I wanted to draw a recognizable Egyptian queen other than the two I usually do, Hatshepsut and Cleopatra VII. As for the hand sign she’s greeting you with, I believe it is from the rap/hip-hop subculture. I like to imagine that if the Egyptian civilization survived to the present day, they’d really be into hip-hop and related musical genres.
