|Egypt: Archaeologists Unearth 3,400 Pharaoh Statue |
CAIRO (AP).- Egypt's antiquities chief says archaeologists have unearthed the upper half of a red granite statue of a powerful pharaoh who ruled nearly 3,400 years ago.
Zahi Hawass says the statue was discovered on Thursday at the site of the funerary temple of Amenhotep III, one of the largest on the west bank of the Nile in the southern temple city of Luxor.
The statue portrays Amenhotep III with the falcon-headed sun god Re-Horakhti and exhibits the expert craftsmanship of ancient Egyptian artisans.
Hawass said in a statement Thursday the statue was found during a routine excavation carried out by an Egyptian team of archaeologists.
Amenhotep III was the grandfather of the famed boy-pharaoh Tutankhamun.
