Hey there, Freedom students! Check out this great story from Egypt!
A new statue of king Amenhotep III was found in Egypt last week by The Colossi of Memnon and Amenhotep III Temple Conservation Project. This statue shows the great king Amenhotep III sitting on his throne. It is made of black granite.
The group that discovered the statue are currently restoring Amenhotep III’s temple on Luxor’s west bank. They found a similar statue in 2009. They’ve also found several other statues or pieces of statues throughout their project. Many of these statues are parts of the goddess Sekhmet. She was a warrior goddess and a goddess of healing. She is often shown with a lion’s head. She was the fiercest hunter in all of Egypt.
The Colossi of Memnon and Amenhotep III Temple Conservation Project hope to display these statues in the temple once it has been restored.
