Statue found in Luxor of Amenhotep III’s daughter

Archaeologists unearthed a statue of princess Iset, the daughter of Pharaoh Amenhotep III who in turn is the grandfather of Tutankhamun. It is the first picture that’s found of Iset and measures up to 1.70 meters high and is part of a 14-meter high alabaster statue of Amenhotep III that was excavated earlier. On the image Iset sits between the feet of her father, her name and royal title engraved next to her. Regrettably, her face is damaged by erosion. It is the first image of Iset with her father, no brothers or sisters.  Amenhotep ruled about 3350 years ago in Egypt.
