Egypt's Ministry of Antiquities unveiled the discovery of parts from two statuses belonging to the 19th Dynasty (1,250 BC) in the eastern Cairo ancient neighborhood of Matariyyah, Thursday.
The discovery was made by a joint Egyptian-German archaeological mission operating in the vicinity of the King Ramses II temple.
Dietrich Raue, who led the mission, said that the massive statue is the first of its kind to be found in the area. The Pharaonic king "is depicted as striding, strong young man," Raue said, describing the statue.
Egyptian Minister of Antiquities Khaled Elanany said that the discovered parts of the Ramses II statue will be moved to the Grand Egyptian Museum for restoration work. They are expected to be on display by the inauguration date of the Grand Egyptian Museum in Giza, April 2018.
