The iconic bust of Nefertiti is usually in the news because of Hawass's efforts to have it returned to Egypt, but this story from Ahram Weekly is more about the artistic history of the bust itself.

A CT scan has revealed a different, more-wrinkled, vision of Nefertiti beneath the visible image. For photos, go here to the Physorg.com site. The photos can be enlarged a bit if you click on them. That article also describes the scientific process in much greater detail and if you want a photo of the bust entering the scanner itself, that's here - I think it's genuine.
