Roehrig, Catherine H. (ed.).
Hatshepsut. From Queen to Pharaoh.

Metropolitan Museum of Art/Yale University Press: 2005.

"The female pharaoh Hatshepsut-whose mummy was positively identified in Cairo in June 2007-reigned for nearly 20 years in the 15th century BC, first as a regent for her stepson Thutmose III and then as senior co-ruler. By tradition she was often depicted as male, and was one of the most successful of the female pharaohs yet after her death monuments bearing her image were defaced and her name was erased from historical accounts. This catalog presents 200 objects in color from this unique and highly creative period, including architecture, royal sculpture and reliefs, ceremonial objects, personal items, and dazzling jewelry".

Softcover. 9"x12", 340 pages, color and b/w illustrations. New. Published for $45.00.
