Seated Statue Of Amenhotep III
The entrance to the Egyptian Statue gallery is flanked by
two life sized black granite representations of Amenhotep III.
This photograph of one of these statues shows well the detail
the ancient stone masons could work into a hard stone such as
granite with the simple tools available.
These statues were removed from their original location by
Belzoni, and one of the statues bears his name crudely carved
into the back of the foot.
