Nefertiti and Akhenaten (Amarna Imagery)

Artefacts in the Petrie Museum from the royal palace at Amarna offer examples of Amarna royal imagery, for example in display case WEC4 there is a limestone statuette group of Akhenaten, Nefertiti and Princess.

Although the cards are not specific in mentioning Akhenaten and Nefertiti they are easily recognised by their identifiable image:
o ‘The Lord of the World’ (King of Pentacles).
o ‘The Lady of Glory’ (Queen of Pentacles).
