The Egyptian Antiquities Ministry says the archaeologists have found the head of a wooden statue that probably shows the Egyptian ruler 4,000 years ago.
It is believed that the head belongs to the statue Ankessenpepi II, the mother of the pharaoh of the sixth dynasty Pepi II. Pepi is a pharaoh of six years, and she as ruler ruled Egypt while he was growing up.
Egypt’s Ministry of Antiquities states that the case was found in the area of Sakara, near the pyramid in Giza.
The statement states that the head is in bad shape and that it will have to be restored.
Earlier this month, he found a part of an obelisk of pink granite on the same site, which also belongs to the sixth dynasty.
