Diorite statue of King Chephren (Khafre), builder of the second pyramid in Giza. Its remarkable state of preservation, its grandeur and the motif of the hawk (god Horus), emblematical of his mythological ancestors, protecting his head with her outstretched wings, all combine to rank it first in the statuary of ancient Egypt. It was found at the bottom of a wall near the gateway of his valley-temple 'the temple of the sphinx'. Giza, 4th dynasty. Cairo Museum
