Hatshepsut Photos - National Geographic

A selection of Hatshepsut related photos appear on the National Geographic website.

The colour can still be seen on the sphinx (6th picture) which is remarkable considering the time which has passed since its completion.

It's funny how you have to paint your house once a year (or every few years), yet the Egyptians managed to create painted sculptures and wall reliefs which still have their original pigment today!
