Archaeologists from Egypt and Germany have found a massive eight-meter statue submerged in ground water in a Cairo slum that they say probably depicts revered Pharaoh Ramses II, who ruled Egypt more than 3,000 years ago. The discovery, hailed by the Antiquities Ministry as one of the most important ever, was made near the ruins of Ramses II's temple in the ancient city of Heliopolis, located in the eastern part of modern-day Cairo.
"Last Tuesday they called me to announce the big discovery of a colossus of a king, most probably Ramses II, made out of quartzite," Antiquities Minister Khaled al-Anani told Reuters on Thursday at the site of the statue's unveiling.
"We found the bust of the statue and the lower part of the head and now we removed the head and we found the crown and the right ear and a fragment of the right eye," Anani said. On Thursday (Mar.9) , archaeologists, officials, local residents, and members of the news media looked on as a massive forklift pulled the statue's head out of the water. The joint Egyptian-German expedition also found the upper part of a life-sized limestone statue of Pharaoh Seti II, Ramses II's grandson, that is 80 centimeters long.
The cardinal ingresses of the Sun have a traditional reputation as important mundane events. Of these the Capricorn Ingress has a special place and is considered by many to be the annual chart. Shown here is the Capricorn Ingress chart for Cairo, Egypt. Of special interest here is the Jupiter-Uranus-Pluto T-square aligned with the angles. Among other things we associate this combination with scientific discoveries that bring hidden things to light. More specifically here, Uranus on the Ascendant is conjunct stars in King Cepheus’ head and neck!
If we progress the ingress chart to March 9, the combination once again appears on the angles and is thereby triggered.
