I am new here and to start off i have a perhaps simple question which is proving to be a difficult task for me to solve.
I was at the art gallery of ontario today and they have an exibit now for the treasures of king tut.
I saw a statue that i have never seen before in the past. It was a large statue painted that may resemble king tut (although a fairly pale complexion). With the traditional head dress of the golden mask in colours blue and gold. The paint is slightly fading and the lips are a bright red. When i first saw it it immediatley stood out as fairly odd since i do not recall ever seeing glorified statues of king tut. The legs are cut off at the thighs and i do not recall if the hands are still there.
Im sorry i do not have a picture but if anyone has any more information on this please let me know.
It must be a more recent discovery since i have not seen it in the past 15 or 20 years when i visited the museum and temple in luxor.
