Statue of Ramses II represents one of Egypt's greatest pharaohs. Discovered in 1820 near Memphis, the 3,200-year-old standing statue made from limestone was restored from six broken pieces to its full height of 10 m (33.8 ft) in 1955. Originally set on a 3 m (9.8 ft) high pedestal in Ramses Square in Cairo, the giant structure now sits inside a small museum built with the sole purpose to protect and display it. The colossus commanding the square is a replica. The museum displays the gargantuan statue in a lying position, and though both of the king's legs remain unfinished, the carefully carved statue leaves a powerful impression on visitors.
