Beautiful Companion


Recently they’ve discovered the dismembered legs of a mummy they think could be the Egyptian Queen Nefertari, the famously beautiful consort of Pharaoh Ramses II. That was part of my reason for drawing her yet again, but also my muse was otherwise a bit worn out that night.

The name “Nefertari” (not to be confused with that of the earlier Nefertiti, who was Akhenaten’s queen) means “beautiful companion” in the ancient Egyptian language.
