Return of Old Kingdom Blocks

Two sandstone blocks have been returned to Egypt and are currently under restoration at the national museum. The two blocks said to be off old kingdom monuments.

The smaller block has a representation of the lioness Goddess Sekhmet while the other larger block is part of a title for the king of Upper and Lower Egypt. The block were in possession of a New Zealand photographer who passed away last year.
