Behold, the real face of Cleopatra

By | December 16, 2008

Pieced together from images on ancient artefacts, including a ring dating from Cleopatra’s reign 2,000 years ago, it is the culmination of more than a year of painstaking research. The result is a beautiful young woman of mixed ethnicity  –  very different to the porcelain-skinned Westernised version portrayed by Elizabeth Taylor in the 1961 movie Cleopatra. – mailonsunday


Interesting, but something is missing. Where is the typical Egyptian protective eye makeup?

The favorite eye shadows were green powdered malachite and black crushed lead ore for kohl. Kohl eyeliner was invented to help protect the eyes against infection. – jasmin
