Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

The ancient Egyptian queen was one of the most beautiful women of antiquity. Accordingly, her name means “The beauty has come”. Her likeness, portrayed as a noble bust, served as the model for this dark style profile picture. Only the golden circlet, the expressive painted eye and the classically elegant contour of the forehead, nose and mouth are highlighted.
As a reduced representation, this abstract portrait enables associations with other icons of female beauty such as Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich and Catherine Deneuve. This portrait is not about individuality but über individualism.
