I got this beautiful bust of Nefertiti today!
As usual, I know nothing about it! It's a mystery! ;)
Seems made of some plastic, it reminds me of the sound and feel from those old Breyer horses from the 60's, but I'm not an expert on plastics. It's not Bakelite though, that much I know!
The whole thing is quite big, slightly over 13 inches tall, but it's light, and hollow, but with no openings or seams. It's a beautiful ivory color, with the golden parts painted in.
It has the words "queen Nofreteti from Amarna 1344 BC" in truncated words on one side.
Does anybody know if it's one of those made by the millions for tourists in Egypt or perhaps it's something a little more unique?
