    The leader of the expedition that discovered the head described it as the best preserved sculpture of Amenhotep III's face found to date.

    Don't be surprised if its discovered that many of the monuments erected by Usar Maat Re (Rameses the great) were in fact built or started by Amenhotep lll, including abu simbel.
