The female head in Fortune - Head of a Princess comes from a set of sculptures made around 1352-1336 B.C, belonging to the Amarna Period of the Eighteenth dynasty in Egyptian history. The princess is the daughter of Akhenaten and Nefertiti, and her figure symbolizes new religious belief. The exaggerated large skull is thought of as a feature of the Amarna family. This brightly coloured jade bracelet is a eastern jewel that dates back to the stone ages, and was seen as the symbol of status, culture and virtue. This culturally rich artifact is now used as a daily accessory. Xu Zhen uses painting to turn it into a royal crown.
