Plumed Goddess

 A woman with the Amun-Ra plumes. Who could this be, a queen or a goddess or a mess?

Hotep!

Wow...I am stuck on the labelling they gave that statue...Vestal Virgin eh?

First off, its iconography aside, it is a rather lovely piece. I think the gown at the bottom is too wide, it should be a sheath, but....

If I had to guess (and we all know how well I do at that) I might say with the headdress it *could* be a Mut and perhaps Hethert? I think either of Them sometimes have the double plumes. It is tough for me to see if there is a vulture headdress.

WHat does anyone else think?

It appears to be a queen to me.  Nefertiti, Nefertari, Tiye, etc all appear in similar form.
Senebty!

I'd say it could be a queen or Hethert or Mut (or Hethert-Mut). She's got a nice who-do-you-think-I-am? air about her. :)
Look out the window. And doesn't this remind you of when you were in the boat, and then later that night you were lying looking up at the ceiling, and the water in your head was not dissimilar from the landscape, and you think to yourself Why is it that the landscape is moving but the boat is still?

I was going to say the same thing, but I also think the statue could be used for Mut, Hethert-Mut, or Sekhmet-Mut too. Or Amunet.

And yeah, "vestal virgin"? Oh dear :eek:

I vote a queen or a ceremonial priestess.  I could be wrong, of course...  I feel that if it was a goddess/netjeret, that she would be seen with either the ankh and/or the Was of Lotus scepter.  Again, could be wrong.

I vote for the queen, too. As it was said before, queens are depicted that way in the New Kingdom. (Just look for "Teje" or "Nefertari" on google images, and you'll find numerous examples)
 At present, I can't think of any goddess I've seen with this specific crown.
