3000-Year-Old Pharaoh Ramses II Statue Found In Cairo Slum: It’s “One Of The Most Important Discovery Ever”

A team of German and Egyptian archaeologists made a colossal discovery on March 9th – literally and figuratively. Parts of a massive, 3000-year-old statue, which is believed to depict the legendary Pharaoh Ramses II, were found buried in the Cairo slum of Matariya. The findings tell an ancient story of the world’s origins, and could start a new chapter for Egypt.The recovered bust and head of the antique statue measure 8 meters in length and are made of quartzite. The upper part of a smaller statue, depicting Pharaoh Seti II (Ramses II’s grandson), and pieces of an obelisk bearing hieroglyphics were also excavated. Experts have already begun restoring the artifacts, which will later be displayed at the Grand Museum set to open in 2018. Ramses II is often considered to have been the greatest Pharaoh to ever rule the Egyptian Empire, and he believed that the world was created in Heliopolis, modern-day Matariya. This latest unearthing of history could help to jump-start the Egyptian tourism industry, which has suffered greatly over the last 6 years due to political unrest and terror attacks.

  1. I heard about this, so much history under our feet and above our heads. It always bubbles up, or falls down upon us. Maybe it is only in our dreams that we can touch some of it. But is always nice to touch a piece of it in the “real” world.

      Art has no boundaries.
      But, we have to stay on our positions ….
      Because it will be necessary to eradicate the evil.
      I do not know how the others get to sleep.
      It is so hard to take a little fun, here is a moment of pause. Enjoy! V
