The double statue, dating from around 2300 BC, was among a total of five wooden statues found at the tomb in Sakkara, the necropolis of the ancient Egyptian city of Memphis, said Zahi Hawass, chairman of the Supreme Council of Antiquities.

"It is a unique statue... In general double seated statues are made of limestone and are rarely carved in wood," he said.

The fact the statue was made of wood is the rare find here. I love Egypt history and couldn't resist posting this info.
