Tomb of Nefertiti's Sculptor

 From the Harvard Gazette comes this article on a tomb at Saqqara discovered in 1996 by Egyptologists Alain Zivie who believes it to be the tomb of the sculptor of the famous and much quarreled over bust of Nefertiti (?), in Berlin's Neues Museum.I put the question mark because the bust does not contain the name of which Amarna lady is present, it is presumed that it is Nefertiti because in some images of the queen she is seen wearing the headdress presented on the famous bust.
