The Half-Lost Statue of Ramesses II Discovered After 100 Years

The half-lost statue of Ramesses II was discovered after 100 years

Archaeologists say that nearly a century after the discovery of a part of the statue of Ramesses II in Egypt, they have now found the missing piece near the same location.

This 36-meter limestone statue fragment was found at the Al-Ashmunein archaeological site in Minya, Egypt, through the joint efforts of the Supreme Council of Antiquities of this country and researchers from the University of Colorado, USA.

The statue depicts the head, shoulders, and upper body of Pharaoh Ramesses II, adorned with a double crown and a royal linen with the Uraeus symbol of the Egyptian cobra as a sign of divine kingship and power.

Further research has shown that this limestone piece complements its lower part, which was discovered almost a century ago in 1930 by the German archaeologist, Gunter Roeder.
