THE GRAB FOR NEFERTITI... whether behind a tomb wall... or behind the glass in a museum case.

The whole world wants a piece of her

Here's another article, this one in the NY Times, on the secret scanning and 3D printing by a pair of artists of the iconic Nefertiti bust in the Nueus museum, Berlin.

This story, added to the even bigger one about the investigation to find Nefertiti's resting place behind a wall in Tutankhamun's tomb, suggests a convergence in the zeitgeist for this enigmatic queen. 

The whole world wants a piece of her.

You can meet her in fiction, in my novel THE PHARAOH PLAGUES on Amazon Kindle.
