The impressive collection of the Egyptian Museum and Papyrus Collection (Ägyptisches Museum und Papyrussammlung) is on display at the Neues Museum. It encompasses masterpieces from different eras of ancient Egypt: from ornate statues, colourful reliefs, exquisite craftwork and delicate papyri to stone sarcophagi weighing several tonnes and examples of monumental Egyptian architecture. The collection is a testament to the accomplishments of the period between 3000 BCE and the beginnings of the Roman Empire. Perhaps best known for the world-renowned bust of Queen Nefertiti, whose paint work has survived without restoration since the Amarna period, other highlights of the exhibition include a series of exceptional portrait busts of the royal family and members of the court. One of the most important works from the late Egyptian period is the expressive 'Berlin Green Head' named after the colour of its stone.
