This is a photo-manipulation I created using Pharaoh Tutankhamun's famous sarcophagus mask and the beautiful Kenyan actress Lupita Nyong'o (who has a role in the upcoming movie 12 Years a Slave). I intended this to represent a character from my own imagination, but now that I think about it, it could pass off as a portrait of one of the historical female Pharaohs of ancient Egypt (e.g. Hatshepsut or Sobekneferu). I had some trouble recoloring the sarcophagus mask's ears to match Lupita's skin tone but I like how everything else came out.

Nice! I probably wouldn't have noticed the ears if you hadn't pointed it out. :)

I like it. I agree with Gumby, I too wouldn't have noticed the ears if you had not brought attention to them.

I would have given you a 'like' but the option is not there to do so.

lol, I noticed the ears right away. I still love it, though.
