Ancient Egypt

The statue shown in this image is Cleopatra VII who was an Egyptian queen. She was considered as the last "Pharaoh of Egypt" during the Ptolemaic Dynasty (332-30 BC). The Black basalt statue is one of the best-preserved images of a Ptolemaic queen. She is wearing a wig with many braids and holding a cornucopia. The figure is clearly Egyptian in style, though with Greek attributes (knotted dress). The front of the headdress is decorated with a uraeus, the symbol of Egyptian royalty.
