Shea for Cleopatra

Shea for Cleopatra

Queen Cleopatra of Ptolemaic Egypt is giving her skin some shea butter to moisturize it. Shea butter, processed from the nuts of the African shea tree, has been used for skin and hair-conditioning throughout the continent since ancient times; it’s said Cleopatra had whole caravans carrying it to her place in clay jars.

This time I based Cleopatra’s face off a Facebook acquaintance of mine (nicknamed Glo) since I thought she resembled my mental image of Cleopatra. I hope she sees this and is flattered!
