More re Hatshepsut exhibition

http://tinyurl.com/onr37 (The New Yorker)
Another review which combines some details about the exhibition with some information about Hatshepsut and anicent Egypt: "With a broad face, large-featured but for a dainty chin, Hatshepsut is no Nefertiti. Even in colossal statuary, she’s more pleasant-looking than anything else—a woman whose appearance, except for over-the-top eye makeup, would startle no one in a Midwestern mall. The more formidable mien of Senenmut suggests that Hatshepsut was one to impose her will by cat’s paw."
