Seated Statue of Maatkare Hatshepsut

This statue of the female pharaoh Hatshepsut is a prime example of the female king's penchant for blending male and female attributes in her artwork. It depicts the pharaoh bare chested in a kilt, yet with female facial features and breasts. She also wears the "nemes" crown associated with Egyptian kingship. (c. 1479-1458 BCE, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York).
