1980s Original Egyptian Papyrus Painting of Nefertari or Cleopatra - Framed w/Glass
From my smoke-free, pet-free home. I purchased this painting on papyrus during a trip to Egypt in 1980 and had it professionally framed upon my return to the USA. It's a copy of an ancient work, reproduced by hand for the tourist market. The image depicts a woman who is almost certainly either Cleopatra or Nefertari Meritmut. The image is enhanced with gilt paint.
The simple black frame measures approximately 21" x 16.5". The art piece itself is about 15.5" x 11" and sits atop the mat rather than below it.
Condition - From my smoke-free, pet-free home. Professionally framed. The frame is solid, and the glass is free of chips or cracks. The frame is very solid, and the framer used a solid backer board behind the piece for stability. The paper backing on the frame has 2 small tears, but they do not go through to the art piece because of the backer board. I'll leave it to the buyer to tape that over, if you wish. It doesn't show when the picture is hung.
I have a total of 5 Egyptian pictures listed, all the same size but depicting different images. Please message me prior to purchase if you are interested in buying 2 or more so I can prepare a discounted listing for you.
