Description This was once part of a statue showing a seated queen wearing the vulture headdress associated with queens as well as goddesses such as Isis and Hathor. The 30th Dynasty saw the revival of Middle Kingdom motifs, such as the wig with large curls and the large ears. Late Period details include the fleshy face, the slight smile, and the long cosmetic lines of the eyes and brows.
