Gone with the Nile Wind

Gone with the Nile Wind

Queen Nefertari of New Kingdom Egypt is about to receive a bowl of dates from her trusty Middle Eastern maidservant.

I meant this as an inversion of the old Gone with the Wind movie from 1939, in which Hattie McDaniel played the white heroine’s plump slave “Mammy”. She may have won an Academy Award for her performance in that movie, but I personally feel poor McDaniel got screwed with that role. She deserved better.
