Spiegel Online has run an interesting interview with Dr Hawass in which at last he criticises the withdrawal of the police.  It is worth reading, although Google Translate always struggles with translation from German.

If the article is interesting, the accompanying photo gallery is excellent.  Photo 9 for instance shows the Akhenaten statue in its case with a clear picture of a small carved head next to it.  Is this the stolen head?  We don't know as there has been no official word, but it would make sense.  It is worth reviewing all of the photos as they are a good collection.

The head next to the statue of Akhenaten in the photo has, in the past, been attributed to Ay. Whether, in the current confusion, this is in fact the stolen head/ who can say? Great blog by the way!

Martin, I can see why! It is quite masculine.

I never realized that statue of Ramesses II as a child [number 6 in the slideshow] was quite that large! Wow.
