Hatshepsut kneeling with gold and bird concept

Following my them around death, macabre and the morbid, this time round I turned what was originally depicting the queen into a demon like creature,
The original sculpture dates back from the 18th Dynasty of Egyptian history. This colossal kneeling statue shows the queen wearing the traditional nemes headdress and false beard, offering two jaws of milk or water.
Her name, Maat-ka-re is inscribed in the cartouche above the buckle of her belt.

This kneeling position, while presenting jars of offerings, is commonly seen in representations of New Kingdom kings and queens. The oldest such statue of this type is of Pepi I, sculpted in green slate, now on display at The Brooklyn Museum. Other kneeling statues show royalty presenting an offering altar or a Naos of a god's statue.

The work can be found on the Ground Floor (Gallery 7) of the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. NB. The thumbnail of this image depicts a very similar work from The Metropolitan Museum of Art and not the version in Cairo.
