The mystic statue (しんぴてきなちょうこく, shinpitekinachoukoku?, mystic sculpture) is one of the sculptures first introduced and available in New Leaf and can be collected by Happy Home Handbook in Happy Home Designer. This piece is based on the Nefertiti Bust, created by the royal sculptor Thutmose, and was found in 1913 by Ludwig Borchardt. The sculpture is only available at Crazy Redd's. In New Horizons, the sculpture can be donated to the museum and be added to the art gallery. As this sculpture can be bought from Jolly Redd's Treasure Trawler, players should keep in mind that they may be purchasing a forgery.

The Nefertiti Bust was created some time around 1345 BC, and depicts the royal wife Nefertiti, whose husband, Akhenaten ruled at the time. Although not much is known about Nefertiti's origins, it is believed that she was wed to Akhenaten during her teen years, and should give birth to their six daughters.

The bust itself was discovered in 1913 in Armana and is one of the most well-preserved Egyptian artifacts. Created from limestone and covered with gypsum, the bust demonstrates the excellent grasp Egyptian artists had of the human face (proportion-wise), but was never completed, as one eye is seen covered with wax. This specific bust has generally been assumed to have been an example used for mass production.

Limestone

A bust of Nefertiti, whose name means "the beautiful one has come." A "royal wife," she was known as one of the three most beautiful women in ancient Egypt. It is not known whether the left eye is missing because it fell out, or because it was never completed.
