Kiya Flaunts It

Kiya Flaunts It V3

The Egyptian royal wife Kiya, wed to the infamous Pharaoh Akhenaten of the New Kingdom, is flaunting her anatomical gifts. For a while it was speculated she might have been the mother of King Tut himself, though recent DNA evidence from their mummies suggests against that scenario. Regardless, we have a number of statuary (some of it headless) depicting royal women from the so-called Amarna Period when Akhenaten reigned, and notably the subjects tend to have, ahem, stylistically pronounced posteriors.

As for her big hair, that’s actually a wig based on the so-called “Nubian wig” which was fashionable during Kiya’s time.
