The statue is made of quartzite and could be up to 3,000 years old. The statue was discovered in mud near the ruins of Ramses II's temple in the ancient city of Heliopolis, which is why archaeologists believe the statue is a likeness of the famous ruler. A limestone statue of Pharaoh Seti II, the grandson of Ramses II, was also found at the site.
