Statue of Amenhotep III unearthed in Luxor

A statue of King Amenhotep III, the grandfather of Tutankhamun, has been unearthed in Luxor, Egypt.

The 44 feet tall statue is made of colored quartzite. It is composed of several large pieces that once put together will depict the king as standing.

The latest find comes after several other relics of the king were unearthed last year in his mortuary temple on the west bank of the Nile River in Luxor.
