Taharqa in the Sudan

Finally we have a picture of the massive statue of the Egyptian pharaoh Taharqa last pharaoh of Egypt's 25th Nubian dynasty. The striding statue of the king has been found far south of Egypt in the Sudan. Statues of two other Nubian kings were found near the Taharqa statue but these rulers were never Egyptian pharaohs.
