Description

Zeft's iconic Nefertiti and her gas mask, created as a tribute to the role of Egyptian women in the revolution. This image was often used in placards, especially at women's marches and women's events in 2012-2013.
Nefertiti was an ancient Egyptian queen. Here, she not only stands in for Egyptian women but also for the Egyptian nation itself, with its Pharaonic roots.
