New statue of Amenhotep III uncovered (discovered)



A close-up of the newly discovered double statue of Amenhotep III and Re-Horakhty. 

The statue was found during SCA excavations at the site of Amenhotep III's mortuary temple on the west bank of Luxor. 



The statue was beautifully carved out of Aswan red granite, but interestingly it has inclusions of a darker solid stone that can be seen in the faces of the two figures.
