Neferneferuaten Nefertiti (c. 1370 – c. 1330 BC) was an Egyptian queen and the Great Royal Wife (chief consort) of Akhenaten, an Egyptian Pharaoh. Nefertiti and her husband were known for a religious revolution, in which they worshiped one god only, Aten, or the sun disc. With her husband, she reigned at what was arguably the wealthiest period of Ancient Egyptian history. Some scholars believe that Nefertiti ruled briefly as Neferneferuaten after her husband's death and before the accession of Tutankhamun.....(King Tut, her son)

If that head pictured on the left is the mummy then I have a hunch the taxidermist had his beer goggles on.

That skull is about 3300 years old - hope you look that good at that age. LOL

I understand and this is why she could have very well have looked like this.

Forensic scientist have become accomplished at recreating faces from skulls.

These features would likely have been typical of Middle Eastern Jews in the Galilee area of northern Israel. The 'reconstruction' was based on three Semite skulls found in Israel. These skulls were contemporary with the time of Jesus.

McCartney's Anglo traits come through. Not as rugged and much lighter. Less brow ridge and vastly different nose, etc.

Side view is more revealing:
