Even female Pharaohs lol

Appreciation of Beards in Ancient Egypt:

Facial hair in ancient Egypt experienced highs and lows throughout the ages. While facial hair was common on men in the pre-dynastic era, it faded out once the early dynastic period rolled around. At that point, the shaven look was prevalent, both with aristocracy and with everyday citizens.

Beards and Godliness:

Although beards weren't the norm for men at that time in ancient Egypt, they were associated with the gods. Pharaohs, regardless of their gender, wore the beards for this exact purpose. Although they were for the most part males, there were occasional female pharaohs, too.

The beards typically were braided in a tight manner -- a style that was thought to be especially godly. Hair from goats was usually the main ingredient in these beards, which usually were thin at the top and somewhat broader farther down.

Pharaohs typically put their false beards on for ceremonies, with the aim to express their importance and divine ranking.

Sign of Masculinity:

Beards in ancient Egypt were also strongly linked to qualities such as mightiness, manliness and male fertility. They thought that beards gave off the impression of intelligence and experience due to age, which is why it was so imperative for the pharaohs to have them.

Reason for False Beards:

Although ancient Egyptian men could just have easily grown authentic beards, they opted instead for fake hair out of concern for hygiene.

They considered thick mustaches, beards and eyebrows indications of a lack of cleanliness. Not only did ancient Egyptians keep their faces mostly hair-free, but they usually didn't have much in the way of body hair either. Ancient Egyptians cared a lot about looking meticulous and tidy.

False Beards in Death:

When pharaohs passed away, they tended to be portrayed as Osiris, a god who represented death and the afterlife. Part of this involved emulating his beard, which had slight curling at the tip.

The false beards were often placed over the coffins of the pharaohs, as the coffins frequently featured illustrations of their faces.

I watch quite a lot of documentaries about Ancient Egypt, and on every single one this man seems to rear his ugly head. I have to fight the urge to punch the TV! :wt f

In regards to the fucked up painting, I could paint that better. Seriously though, I hope the woman was reprimanded in some fashion. Hopefully she was fired. As for the glued on beard, try Gorilla glue; that shit is awesome!

In fact, the woman demanded to be paid for her "restoration work."

Payment was denied.
