Hi everyone, they found the tip of Phararoh Tutankhamen's nose! Well actually it once belonged on a colssus statue of Amen, at Luxor. This statue has the features of Pharaoh Tutankhamen. Apparently at some point in history the statue lost its nose along with other parts of it. While what is left of the statue remains at the temple of Amen at Luxor. The nose tip was recently found in excavation of Luxor and reapplied to the colssus.

You can read about this statue regaining his nose in the newest issue of Kmt A Modern Journal of Ancient Egypt, Volume 15, Number 1, Spring 2004 pg 27-28.
The article expressed hope that other parts of the statue will eventuallly found as well.
