From Nefertari: Gemahlin Rameses’ II (Mainz, 1994)

Queen Nefertari is warmly greeted by Hathor, who clasps Nefertari’s hand and lifts her right hand to the queen’s face. Because Ramesside queens were thought to assume a male aspect in the afterlife, which permitted them to achieve regeneration, they were sometimes depicted with reddish-brown skin, a color reserved for male figures (the goddesses, however, were depicted with the yellowish skin associated with women).
