A colossal statue of Ramses II, in the Open-Air Museum at Memphis, Egypt. This statue is so huge that they left it on the ground and built the museum around it. We felt very small on the balcony surrounding it.
In this greywacke statue, the god Horus (depicted as a falcon; head is lost) protects the praying figure of Nectanebo II. From Memphis, Egypt. 30th Dynasty, circa 350 BCE. (State Museum of Egyptian Art, Munich, Germany).
