The official Derek Riggs website and online portfolio.


A few years ago I made a digital reconstruction of the heavily damaged bust of the Egyptian queen Nefertiti.

I recreated the textures and replaced the missing parts using reference material from the period in order to bring the statue back to life.

Then in a fit of whimsy (I get a lot of those) I added the sunglasses to make her into "Cool Neffy."

Both of the pictures are available as art prints.

A photo of the original bust of Nefertiti is below.

Sorry but I have no idea where the original photo comes from. If you own the rights, then let me know and I will add a photo credit here.
