Who's that girl?

Yah, we know it's Tootsie Roll!  No, not the "human" girl!  The girl on the pin, silly!?  But of course, it is Queen Nefertiti!  Of Queen Nefertiti it is said that even in the ancient world her beauty was famous, and her famous statue, found in a sculptor's workshop, is not only one of the most recognizable icons of ancient Egypt, but also the topic of some modern controversy. However, she was more than a pretty face. In artwork, her status is evident and indicates that she had almost as much influence as her husband - the heretic King Akenaten.  Want to learn more about Queen Nefertiti?  Or maybe compare her pretty face to that of Tootsie Roll's?
