Queen Nefertiti 1351 – 1337 BC was the chief wife. She was also consort of Akhenaten, the heretic pharaoh, during the 18th dynasty of the New kingdom. His other wives included Kiya who some believe to be the mother of his son, Tutankhamun.
Nefertiti attained the power and status of a Pharaoh and co-ruler with Akhenaten during the most turbulent years in the history of ancient Egypt when she and her husband Akhenaten started a religious revolution. However, the new religion centered on the worship just one god, the Aten. Akhenaten attempted to stop the worship of the other older gods alienating both the priests and the Egyptian people.
Nefertiti meant “the beautiful (or perfect) woman has come”. Egyptologists say she was the most beautiful queen to rule Ancient Egypt. There is some speculation that when Akhenaten disappeared Nefertiti assumed the sole role as the Pharaoh. She ruled under the name of Smenkhkare Ankhetkheperure. This has never been proved and rule of of the pharaoh called Smenkhkare only lasted two years, the successor was Tutankhamun.
From the earliest dynasties onward, Egypt developed a very high degree of civilization. And the exploitation of metals – copper, bronze and precious metals such as gold and silver – was an essential part of their culture. The Egyptian copper-smith must have been a man of importance since he had to make saws, chisels, knives. As well as dishes and trays, all out of copper or bronze, for artisans of the many trades.
The history of copper in architecture can be linked to its durability, corrosion resistance, prestigious appearance, and also the ability to form complex shapes. For centuries, craftsmen and designers utilized these attributes to build aesthetically pleasing and long-lasting building systems.
Like all our other exquisite jewelry, this plate is handcrafted, and highly detailed by our talented craftsmen. It is also top quality and can last for a lifetime.
