This colossal sized head and shoulder bust depicts Hatshepsut, the female pharoah who reigned for about 20 years and came to the throne of Egypt in 1478BC. She's regarded as one of the most successful rulers of Egypt. This sculpture was part of a sphinx, which was lost many years past. There were many other sphinxes made to depict her -Bahri. This one in particular dumpted in a quarry close by and was smashed into many fragments at the sequence of successor Thutmose III and Hatshepsut's nephew. This sculpture is on permanent display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
