This bust is done in a funeral mask likeness to that of an 18th dynasty queen.Her funeral mask did not survive the great cleansing after Ay's death(Tutankhamuns successor), Horemheb usurped the throne and instigated a campaign of damnatio memoriae against all the Armana royal personages of the period.
