Hatshepsut is a granite statue of Queen Maatkare Hatshepsut. Unlike many other societies, Egypt had its share of female Pharaohs. This also aids to show the type of society they were and the things that they valued. In comparison, America has yet to have a female president.The ancient Egyptians also believed that Pharaohs were gods on earth. In the statue, she is seen sitting on her throne, with a traditional headdress. It appears as if she is smiling, peaceful. It's as if the artist wanted to portray her as being powerful yet kind. The statue lacks color. It looks more like it represents strength and the grandiose. The features are rounded, and there aren't really and jagged angles. Once again I believe the artist is trying to convey a softer, more caring side of the leader subtly.
