Cleopatra, 1858 (marble) by William Wetmore Story, (1819-95). Cleopatra (69–30 B.C.), the last Macedonian ruler of Egypt, meditates suicide; the asp curled around her left arm predicts her death from its venomous bite. She wears the "nemes," or royal headcloth, topped with the "uraeus," or cobra headdress.
