(ANSAmed) - CAIRO, JULY 28 - ''Pink and black granite statues dating back to the era of Ramesses II'' together with Coptic-era blocks of limestone have been found near Mit Raineh, some 30 km south of Cairo, by archaeologists of the Superior Council of Egyptian antiquities, according to the Facebook page of the Egyptian ministry of tourism and antiquities.
Archaeology: Egypt, Ramesses II and Hathor statues found




Statues of ancient Egyptian goddesses and Pharaoh Ramses II have been uncovered in Egypt.

Italian news agency ANSA reports that the finds were made near Mit Raineh, about 18 miles south of Cairo.

Ramses II, also known as Ramses the Great, ruled Egypt from 1279 B.C. to 1213 B.C. He is credited with expanding Egypt's reach as far as modern Syria to the east and Sudan to the south.

They were just discovered ''in the last few days''.

I don't think there have been any pictures released yet. Any pictures I have seen on the web may just be stock.

The screen cap I posted below from the Fox News video may really be of a newly discovered statue.

If anyone knows of any more pics or videos, please link to them or post them if you can.

The best description I have found is ''Pink and black granite statues dating back to the era of Ramesses II''.



I did a quick reverse image search on TinEye and Google. No matches were found.

ETA - It looks like there may be hieroglyphics or something encoded into the hair.

Except slaves were not really used for such public projects, quarry men were paid in onions bread and beer, and strike when they damned well pleased , they weren't Romans.

If a statue of an abolitionist can be torn down to placate feelz, then I feelz like poor historical knowledge shouldn't hinder my wokeness. I don't think you understand just how woke i am right now.

and in light of your edit, it's a joke Frances, lighten up.

Not sure if this is a reason but the cave drawings would show heighlightes the most important things about a person, spirit or animal. Maybe this has some effect on the statue?

Hathor (if that's the statue, and I think it is) is holding an ankh in her right hand.

The statue has a hole in the top of the head, just like the Sphinx. Probably means nothing, but I don't know anything.

Cool article. I did not know about the beard wigs. I seriously thought they invented the metal goatee and were real!

Probably because Nephilim DNA was more concentrated back then...

As opposed to now, where the larger skull might not be easily noticed.
