Egyptian National Museum, part 3 – Statues

The statues that were carved in ancient Egypt ranged from tiny (small enough to stand three of them on a coin) to enormous. All of them were incredibly detailed. Far more detailed than I was expecting. They are also far more well-preserved than I expected.

Of course some are broken or worn away. 5,000 years in the Sahara Desert has a way of doing that. Still, the workmanship on these was just incredible.

Not trick photography. This statue of Cleopatra is humongous.
