Relief of the Goddess Hathor
Acquired by Champollion in 1829 Now in the Louvre.
Stele Dedicated by Ramose to the goddess
New Kingdom, 19th Dynasty, ca. 1292-1189 BC. Painted and carved limestone, from Deir el-Medina. Now in the Egyptian Museum of Turin.
A small stele depicts the pharaoh Ramesses II (r. ca. 1279-1213 BC) in the pose of a child: seated, his finger to his lips, and a braid of hair falling to one side. Now in the Louvre.
This piece was found in 1820 by an Italian traveler Giovanni Battista Caviglia. The Colossus of Ramesses II is an enormous statue carved in limestone. It is about 10m (33.8 ft) long, even though it has no feet, and is located near the village of Mit Rahina (Memphis).
A small museum has been built to house this magnificent piece. The fallen colossus was found near the south gate of the temple of Ptah, located about 30m from the huge limestone statue of Ramesses II. Some of the original colors are still partly preserved.
