Nefertiti busted?

A famous Egyptian artifact, the bust of Nefertiti, may be a fake, according to a Swiss historian.  He believes it was made in 1912 to test ancient Egyptian pigments, and so many experts mistook it for an actual artifact that its owner couldn't bring himself to reveal the truth.  If he's correct, this would be a hoax on the scale of Pildown Man.
