Background[ edit ] A "house altar" c. Note Nefertiti wears a crown similar to that depicted on the bust. Akhenaten initiated a new monotheistic form of worship called Atenism dedicated to the Sun disc Aten. Theories suggest she could have been an Egyptian royal by birth, a foreign princess or the daughter of a high government official named Ay , who became pharaoh after Tutankhamun.

According to the secretary of the German Oriental Company who was the author of the document and who was present at the meeting , Borchardt "wanted to save the bust for us". The document reveals that Borchardt claimed the bust was made of gypsum to mislead Lefebvre.

The German Oriental Company blames the negligence of Lefebvre and points out that the bust was at the top of the exchange list and says the deal was done fairly. It is made of a limestone core covered with painted stucco layers. The face is completely symmetrical and almost intact, but the left eye lacks the inlay present in the right.

The background of the eye-socket is unadorned limestone. Nefertiti wears her characteristic blue crown known as the "Nefertiti cap crown" with a golden diadem band looped around like horizontal ribbons and joining at the back, and an Uraeus cobra , which is now broken, over her brow. She also wears a broad collar with a floral pattern. The inner face has creases around her mouth and cheeks and a swelling on the nose. The creases and the bump on the nose are leveled by the outermost stucco layer.

According to Huppertz, this may reflect "aesthetic ideals of the era". It was moved to the Reichsbank in Frankfurt and shipped in August to the U.

Central Collecting Point in Wiesbaden , where it was displayed to the public in As early as , East Germany German Democratic Republic insisted on the return of the bust to Museum Island in East Berlin , where it had been displayed before the war.
