Cairo Photos: Fallen Statue of Ramesses II at Memphis


What's left of Egypt's ancient capital of Memphis (from 3100 B.C. to 2200 B.C.) is showcased in an open-air museum. The piece de resistance of the site is a huge, well-preserved fallen statue of Ramesses II, a leader who sits atop the Pharaonic hierarchy (some believe he's the Pharoah from Exodus). The statue rests in a two-story building.
