‘The Beauty of Nefertiti’
This beautiful glass plate is 8” in diameter and depicts the most beautiful woman from ancient times- Nefertiti. She is wearing the traditional headdress of Egyptian queens- the vulture cap associated with the goddess Nekhbet and the elements pertaining to Hathor, such as the cow horns with the solar disk.
The plate has shimmers of gold shinning from the back. The regal queen is painted in flesh, saffron, white, red, blue, green and black.
The hieroglyphs on the plate are the most common representation of her name: ‘nefer’-which is ‘beautiful’ and the symbols for woman (or all women).
I love everything ancient Egyptian and I taught myself how to write cartouches. One entire room in my house is dedicated to the beauty of ancient Egypt. In fact if you visit my website www.1enchantedcraft.com you will find several items that have the feel of ancient Egypt.
I enjoy painting on many surfaces and my plates are no exception. Unlike many hand painted plates mine are painted with food safe enamel type paint. It is safe to wash- if you plan to serve on it. The paint is pretty tough stuff- as long as you are not too aggressive scrubbing it will stay in place.
I only have this one Egyptian plate- however if you would like other Egyptian themed plates or items please contact me for a unique creation.
