Nefertiti to Remain in Berlin, Natürlich
January 30, 2011
In 1913, the year Ernst Ludwig Kirchner finished his Berlin Street Scene, an Egyptian beauty came to the German capital. Now, almost a hundred years later, Egypt’s antiquities chief, Zahi Hawass, is seeking to return Nefertiti’s bust from the German foundation and the Neue Museum which displays it. The epic sculpture (left) reportedly draws over one million visitors annually.
