Another version of the recent story about the finding of missing pieces of the double statue.  No pictures but there is mention of a total of 1000 fragments from various statues.

The double statue of a amenhotep 3 and tiye is probably the highlight of the cairo museum for me. i always stand and stare in awe at its sheer monumental scale every time i see it. The room it is in also adds to its grandeur. i do hope that the statue is not going to be out of action for too long while the missing pieces are refitted. daveh

A thousand fragments:
They had to count them all:
Now they know how many fragments fill The Albert Hall!
