Dear Art Educators,

This was listed in Scout Report (copyright 2006 http://scout.wisc.edu/)

11. Hatsheput: From Queen to Pharaoh [Real Player]
http://www.metmuseum.org/special/Hatshepsut/pharaoh_more.asp

Rather than mounting an online exhibition to accompany Hatsheput: From Queen
to Pharaoh, the Metropolitan Museum has chosen instead to provide a series
of auxiliary features on its Web site. For example, there is an information
page, which explains that Hatshepsut, who ruled Egypt for 20 years (ca.
1473-1458 B.C.), was the first important female ruler known to history. A
special audio feature narrated by actor Sam Waterston can be listened to as
a podcast, downloadable MP3 file, or 12-minute streaming audio. There is
also a 19-image slide show that includes sculpted portraits of Hatshepsut,
jewelry, vases, as well as chairs and other household items. Finally, there
are links with ordering information for the exhibition catalog and other
exhibition-related items from the Museum store.

Here is the link to the main page:

There are some great images in the slide show - including some nice
effigy vessels (to inspire a lesson). You will need to allow pop ups
to see the slide show.

Enjoy.
