Hatshepsut from Deir al-Bahri, Egypt - Hatshepsut is one of the most famous queens of Egypt who also ruled as pharaoh. She was the 5th pharaoh of the 18th Dynasty. Her mummy may have been in KV 60. Although a Middle Kingdom female pharaoh, Sobekneferu/Neferusobek, had ruled before Hatshepsut, being a woman was an obstacle, so Hatshepsut dressed as a man.  Lived at the beginning of the fifteenth century BC, belonging to the Eighteenth Dynasty of the New Kingdom.

The bound atlas figure in the background suggests enslavement to sensual delights, which would have amused more than enlightened the contemporary viewer.
