Product Description
This pendant is an adaptation of the iconic 3,300-year-old bust of Egyptian queen Nefertiti at the Neues Museum in Berlin.

The 3D model I used to make it comes from a purported art "heist"; in late 2015, a couple of German artists claimed to have made an unauthorized, surreptitious 3D scan of the bust and released this model. Their stunt got a lot of world-wide press, including in the New York Times. But my own investigation showed that their story was a hoax, and forced the New York Times to publish a follow-up story about the dubious origin of this model. You can read the story here: http://wp.me/p3KyhA-12S

Wherever this 3D data came from--stolen, faked, or scanned--the model does look quite nice. You can now wear Nefertiti as a pendant in a variety of materials, and tell whatever story you want about its origin.
