I was trying to be funny. Look where that got me! Put the picture back; you're not offending anyone, Amen-Ra™. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

LOL I was wondering why you were shooting yourself in the foot kmt_sesh Very Happy

Just keep it PG13 (per board rules).

I know that you will make several male members, including Kevin, very happy if you'll include a picture of Angelina Jolie in your signature Amen-Ra™ Wink

Oh boy! I'm sure one of them, anneke. What do you think, Amen-Ra™? Every one of your posts would sure grab my attention...depending on the picture of Angelina, many of which are more NC-17.

If you created it yourself, Amen-Ra™, then by all means put it back on! That was a great little graphic, and I was what I originally posted was actually supposed to be a compliment. I know, how obtuse can I be?

This is a man named Natsefamun. I have seen a facial reconstruction of a Natsefamun who was a priest at the temple at Karnak. The photograph I saw had the man bald. I do think this is the same person, but dressed up with a wig.

This is the image on the front of Richard Poe's book Black Spark, White Fire.

I like the image because it has been reconstructed from the skull of a mummy using forensic science. They seem to get pretty accurate portraits using these techniques.

Those facial reconstructions are fascinating...almost like bringing the dead back to life. Isn't that wig he's wearing the style referred to as Nubian? I'm not up on the different names for Egyptian wigs.

I'm not sure, but it might be a Nubian wig.
Some of the wigs remind me a bit of the hairstyle of the Ethiopian man Amen-Ra posted.
