Colossal Seated Statue of Amenhotep III

This Colossal Seated Statue of Amenhotep III was once installed in a temple of Amen-Re in Luxor, Thebes. Amenhotep III was the ninth pharaoh of the 18th Dynasty [1].

The statue, which weighs around 6,100 lbs,  was later usurped by Merneptah (ca. 1213-1203 B.C.). and was moved to a different part of the temple.
