Rediscovery of fantastic Egyptian scroll

Recommended Posts

The girl in the painting looks like she has a headlamp on her head!  (Though I know that can't be what it is.)


It is a fragrance cone, a scented cone likely made of beeswax worn over the wig. That maybe be lotus blossoms or feathers sticking out in front? If you google "Egyptian fragrance cone" you will get lots of similar images.
