Colossal statue of Tutankhamun from Tutankhamun exhibition in Paris (2019). This simplified model was shot from 154 pictures.
“This colossal statue (a little over five meters in the beginning) is traditionally associated with Tutankhamun, although it was apparently usurped by his successor Aÿ, before the Pharaoh Horemheb does reappropriate by writing his name on it, we learn during the exhibition.The youthful features of the Pharaoh, with his round cheeks and mouth full lips, are reminiscent of the representations of Tutankhamun, because they were taken, a few details by his successors Aÿ and Horemheb Presenting traditional elements of the image of the king in Egypt (crowns and loincloth chendjyt), this colossus of quartzite was discovered in Medinet Habou (west of present-day Luxor) where it adorned (with a second colossus today in Chicago) the hall of a memorial temple dedicated to Pharaoh Aÿ, the only piece in the exhibition that does not belong to the tomb of Pharaoh. “
