Queen Hatshepsut - 60cm x 40cm


Egyptian Art Papyrus Painting

Queen Hatshepsut travels in a boat.

Hatshepsut was the female pharaoh of the Eighteenth Dynasty. For a woman to rule Egypt for over 20 years was extremely unusual.

She was the daughter of Tuthmosis I and was married to her half-brother, Tuthmosis II. On his untimely death, his heir was his son by a secondary wife, but as the young Tuthmosis III was still a child, Hatshepsut became regent and ruled on his behalf for about seven years, before proclaiming herself king and ruling jointly with him for a further 14 years.

Although she was a woman, she projected her official image as that of a pharaoh and even wore the royal false beard.

Egyptian Art at its best!
