@mansr Thutmose, court sculptor to Pharaoh Akhenaten, made the sculpture. What's been released under the CC license is this specific scan of the bust, which is a separate work. I now cordially invite you to go be completely wrong somewhere else - preferably not in someone's mentions, and definitely not in mine.
@noelle Nobody knows for sure who made it. There are even claims that it's a fake created in the early 20th century. As for the copyright status, here's a good explanation: https://michaelweinberg.org/blog/2019/11/13/nefertiti-scan-nc-license/
A nice little Mastodon instance. Mild trolling encouraged (keep it local), but not required. Malicious behaviour is not tolerated. Follow Wheaton's law and you'll be fine.
