    The greatest of egypt history: Akhenaten and Nefertiti with the sun disk's (the creator) rays shining down on them...

    Akhenaten - Amarna art differs from conventional Egyptian art styles as it depicts figures in a more feminine fashion and faces are shown exclusively in profile. Akhenaten has been depicted in sculptures with wide hips and a pot belly.

Akhenaten, Egypt's "heretic" Pharaoh. He began a new monotheistic religion centered around the Aten, a non-anthropomorphic sun god. He also moved the capitol to Amarna, ushering in a period of unusual innovation in Egyptian art and culture. After Akhenaten died, the religion collapsed, Amarna was abandoned, and the old Egyptian priesthood regained power. Subsequent archival records call Akhenaten "the enemy."

What is known about Ankhesenamun is that she was born the third daughter of Akhenaten and Nefertiti.

Nefertiti was an Egyptian Queen and the wife of King Akhenaten, an Egyptian Pharaoh. Nefertiti, in Egyptian means, “the beautiful one has come”.

Akhenaten and Nefertiti... my favorites....Akhenaten is responsible for moving Egypt from a polytheistic to a monotheistic society. However, after his death the priests of Luxor returned to the old religion and buried his capitol, Amarna, from the face of the earth. He and Nefertiti's images, tombs, etc were defaced in an attempt to destroy any memory of them and their blasphemy.
