Art History’s Mysteries: Helen of Egypt

ETA: I came across this mystery while reading a book by the Guerilla Girls.

ETA: Which you can purchase on Amazon.

A mosaic found in Pompeii.  To this day, no one knows who created this grand artwork

So, if she existed, who was this Helen of Egypt?  What kind of education did Helen of Egypt receive?  What inspired her to make this painting?

ETA 9-5-2014: I decided to rewrite this post after I realized that it didn’t look good for me to have inaccessible links embedded in the text.  I also took out another active link.  Plus, I had to take care of some grammar problems.

ETA: Did some more clean up.
