Why did the Egyptian sculpture go extinct?
The Egyptian sculpture of a woman with her feet on the ground is a popular attraction in the capital Cairo.
But the statue was not part of a large-scale Egyptian sculpture that has gone on the market since 2014.
The work, called the Pharaonic Woman, is a modern Egyptian work depicting the goddess of childbirth, Aphrodite, standing with her hands clasped together, her head bowed, the sun behind her and her breasts and legs raised.
It was part of an exhibition at the Museo della Scala that was dedicated to the ancient Egyptian goddesses, said Italian architecture and sculptor Matteo Di Nava, the president of the Italian association of the National Museums of Egypt.
Di Nava said that while the sculpture was part on an exhibition, it had not been in a large scale until the last few years.
Its disappearance has caused a stir, and the exhibition has not been rescheduled, he said.
“This piece, in the words of the Egyptian government, ‘is a modern work.'”
The sculpture of the Pharoah was a gift from the king, and it was also a part of the exhibition.
“We are waiting for the government to announce a new date for its resumption,” he said, adding that there was no indication the sculpture had been removed from the market.
Di Navella said he had not seen the sculpture in person but that he had seen a number of photographs of it on the Internet.
“I think it is quite an interesting piece, it has been there for a while,” he added.
“The idea that it has disappeared, it is really sad.”
Egyptian sculptor Di Naveella says the sculpture is part of museum’s Pharaonan collection.
The museum has also displayed pieces from the Bronze Age and the Iron Age.
Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi announced in January that he would take over the government’s Antiquities Ministry.
Sisi has vowed to revive the country’s ancient heritage, revive the economy and improve the quality of life.
