Detail of Hatshepsut, Eighteenth dynasty of Egypt, c. 1473-1458 B.C. Indurated limestone sculpture at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City.

Hatshepsut is depicted in the clothing of a male king though with a feminine form. Inscriptions on the statue call her "Daughter of en:Re" and "Lady of the Two Lands." Most of the statue's fragments were excavated in 1929, by the Museum's Egyptian Expedition, near Hatshepsut's funerary temple at Deir el-Bahri in Thebes. The torso had been discovered in 1845, taken to Berlin, and acquired by the Museum in 1930.
