Luxor Museum Historical Information

Recently built, this Museum displays countless inter – esting finds relating to the history of ancient Thebes.
The most interesting piece is Talatat’s wall, a recomposition of an 18-meter well from the temple of Akhen-Aton in Karnak and destroyed by its success- sors; the 283 blocks forming it were found in the filling of the ninth pylon of the temple of Amon in Karnak. The wall, formed by hundreds of small scenes, shows work in the fields and craftsmen at work, not to men- tion Pharaoh and Queen Nefertiti worshipping the Sun.
It is worth mentioning the elegant head of Hathor in the form of a cow in gilt wood and from Thutankamun’s tomb; a large sandstone head with the unmistakable features of Akhen-Aton and a stone statue of Thot-Mosis I holding the ankh in his hands.
