Hatshepsut - Alexandria National Museum, Alexandria Egypt

Bust of Hatshepsut, Alexandria National Museum # 16 - Alexandria Egypt 2010

Amongst the collections of the National Museum, Alexandria, we have this damaged statue of Hatshepsut. The resemblance to the Osiride Statues of Hatshepsut at Deir el Bahri, suggest to me the original location of this Hatshepsut statue to be Deir el Bahri.

Much colour still exists, as does visible damage to the Uraeus, nose and beard. I believe this item to be a permanent fixture in the museum.

Well that's two new museums and one site posted in one day. Although i currently have no idea how many museums we are away from completion, i believe we have started to "scratch the surface". As for sites - we still have a few to go.
