Ancient statue discovered at Giza Pyramids

Message par Schattenjäger le Mer 25 Fév - 11:29

A statue, almost life-size at 149cm (five feet) tall, was found by maintenance workers north of the smallest of Giza's three main pyramids, the tomb of the fourth dynasty Pharaoh Mycerinus, who ruled in the 26th century BC. The ancient quartzite statue of a seated man was discovered buried close to the surface of the desert.

The newly discovered statue made of the Quartzite Stone, which was found 40 CM underground at the northern area of King Mankara pyramid in Cairo, Egypt

Dr. Zahi Hawas, the Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities announced that the 149 CM tall statue most likely back to the Egyptian old State era(2513-2649 B.C)

The man was wearing a shoulder-length wig and was seated in a simple chair, his right hand clenched on his knee and holding an object. His left hand was resting on his thigh.

The culture ministry said the statue had a number of cracks in a shoulder, its chest and base, and some facial features had been worn away. The head of the statue was only about 40 cm (16 inches) below ground level.
The statue bore no inscriptions, making it hard to identify, though the style suggested it might date to the early years of the Old Kingdom of ancient Egypt, close to Mycerinus's time.

The Giza complex, containing the pyramids and the Sphinx, on the outskirts of the Egyptian capital, is one of the country's most popular tourist sites, attracting millions of visitors every year.
