        Royal Statuary of Hatshepsut

        This article from the WGBH program Sister Wendy: "American Collection" analyzes one of the pieces of art from the reign of the female Egyptian pharaoh, Hatshepsut. Hatshepsut led a prosperous kingdom in which she built new monuments and restored damaged temples of her predecessors. Despite this, her successors attempted to erase her name from history; the only record of her lies within the reliefs of her temple at Deir al-Bahri. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Egyptian, Thebes, 18th dynasty.
