Not Nefertiti, Tiered Icons & The Jade

Filed under: HDRs, The British Museum — Tags: , — BlacksmithPro @ 07:38

So we return again to The British Museum. Not only because I don’t venture out as much as I should to take my photos but because I also truly love shooting in there, just wish they’d switch to LED lighting, save them money and would mean things were lit better cause halogens are yellow and produce too much heat.

Update:As has been pointed out, this first image is very likely not Nefertiti at all but I was stumped and in a hurry to name it yesterday. Post amended (I’m smiling and laughing as I do).



  1. Very nice shots but as, perhaps, your only visitor with an Ancient Egyptian history degree, I don’t think that is Nefertiti…

    • Yeah, I don’t think you’re wrong on that one, was in a rush to call it something and was the closest I could find with a google image search hahahaha! I’m terrible for not simply taking a single shot of the little descriptions before moving on, problem with not shooting with a tripod, makes me move really quickly.

      • The material the head is made from is interesting, some sort of striped granite. I haven’t seen a head like that before.

  2. I may be wrong, but I believe that that is Amenhotep III

  3. The effect of the first photo makes it look like it was taken under water. This gives it a calm quality. Beautiful.
