This cool graphic tee reads, "The Beautiful Black Woman" and refers to Nefertari the Nubian Queen of Egypt. Nefertari, also known as Nefertari Merimut was the first of the Great Royal Wives of Ramesses the Great and she is often ranked among such iconic Egyptian queens as Cleopatra, Nefertiti, and Hatshepsut. Nefertari's name was translated to mean "beautiful companion", and she was also very highly educated, possessing the ability to both read and write in hieroglyphs.
Nefertari appears on several monuments at Abu Simbel in both the great temple and small temple. The small temple itself is actually dedicated to Nefertari and the goddess Hathor of Ibshek. After her death she was buried in tomb QV66 at the Valley of the Queens, and her tomb is one of the largest found at the site. Several remnants from the tomb, items like parts of gold bracelets and a small piece of earring, are on display at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts.
