      1. Tutmose, Nefertiti, was created during the Ancient Egyptian art historical period around 1353-1336 BCE. 2. It is made of Painted limestone. 3. It was originally located in Akhetaten but is now located in Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, Preussischer Kulturbesitz, Agyptisches Museum. It is believed Tutmose created this as a finished model to follow a carving or paintings for his royal patron :)
