HatshepsutBy Della Hawkins
'Hatshepsut is my original depiction of the Egyptian Queen and Pharoah Hatshepsut. Painted in acrylics on stretched canvas, approxinately A4 size. Hatshepsut has a very interesting story; she was on the throne for 20 years and had a peaceable reign. She proclaimed herself Pharoah after being queen and regent for her stepson. Early images show her in the female style, whereas later commisssions depict her as male with a clearly female inscription. She believed this signified her power.
