The Romans here scornful of her and wanted to portray her as this sexy little thing," El Daly, Egyptologist at the Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology at University College London, says.

Individually the symbols offer a well-developed message; however, the multiple meanings contradict, because the different meanings mean opposite ideas. For example, Hester will forever be seen as an adulterer and a steward. These are two opposite concepts, especially in Puritan Society, because a steward helps and an adulterer sins.

Her initial launch into popular culture was controversial, but Kardashian turned herself into multi-million dollar cooperation.
