Colossal 82-Ton Ramses II Statue Moved to Grand Egyptian Museum

Ruptly in English
The Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities started moving a colossal statue of King Ramses II to its permanent display area at the Atrium of the new Grand Egyptian Museum in Giza on Thursday. The relocation process was carried out in collaboration with the Egyptian Armed Forces after the statue began deteriorating due to exposure to the elements at its previous location, Ramses Square in Cairo. The statue was originally discovered in 1820 near the Temple of Ptah, and was moved by former President Nasser in 1955.
