Illustrator Lotza’s poster depicts Cleopatra, one of the most famous and fascinating women in human history. Queen of Egypt in the first century B.C., Cleopatra has left an indelible mark on the collective imagination thanks to her legendary beauty, her sharp intelligence and her exceptional charisma.
Cleopatra was the last queen of the Ptolemaic dynasty, which ruled Egypt for several centuries after the death of Alexander the Great. She succeeded her father Ptolemy XII in 51 B.C. at the age of 18 and immediately faced many challenges in maintaining the independence of her kingdom from foreign powers that sought to conquer it.
Cleopatra was a cultured woman, speaking several languages and interested in the sciences and arts. She was also a skilful politician, able to forge alliances and manipulate men to achieve her goals. This is how she was able to seduce successively two of the most powerful men of her time: Julius Caesar and Mark Antony.
Lotza’s poster pays tribute to Cleopatra’s captivating beauty, which charmed the greatest generals of the Roman Empire. It shows the queen’s beautiful face, with her fine, even features, large black eyes and shiny black hair. This poster will be a true gem for all lovers of Egyptian history and culture, as well as for all those who appreciate timeless beauty and elegance. By the way, do you know Hatshepsout and Nefertiti ?
