Famous works such as the bust of Queen Nefertiti, the portrait of Queen Tiy and the famous ‘Berlin Green Head’ belong to the collection.

The impressive collection of the Egyptian Museum includes masterworks belonging to different epochs of ancient Egypt: statues reliefs as well as monumental pieces of Egyptian architecture document the different time periods of ancient Egypt from 4000 BC up to the Roman Period.

The most significant work of the late period is the so called Berlin “Green Head” named after its greenish stone (ca. 500 BC).
