Newly-Discovered Statues From Giza, 1990-2009

Zahi Hawass

A Publication of The American University in Cairo Press

This new publication from the Egyptian Ministry of State for Antiquities shares the exciting story of the discovery of many unique statues during the excavations of Dr. Zahi Hawass from 1990 through 2009 at Giza. Both Old Kingdom and New Kingdom are represented, including statues of King Menkaure and of Per-ni-ankhu, a dwarf. The most important excavation site was the cemetery of the pyramid builders, near the Great Sphinx. The statues found there, and at the other sites, reveal the exceptional creativity of the ancient sculptors, whose depictions of personages both royal and private continue to fascinate us thousands of years after their making.
