The daughters of Akhenaten and Nefertiti (The Princesses' Fresco), fresco, painted plaster, 40x165cm, from Tell el-'Amarna (ancient Akhetaten), late 18th Dynasty, 1353-1335 BC.

The fragmentary fresco is part of a domestic scene of the royal family which once decorated a private house in the new capital city of the Pharaoh Akhenaten. Two bejewelled younger daughters, Neferure and Neferneferuaten, are perched on cushions at the feet of their mother. (Excavated by Flinders Petrie)
