Dr. Rainer Stadelmann at the opening of a new exhibition at the Egyptian Museum, Cairo, celebrating forty years of Japanese excavations. He is standing next to a terracotta recumbent lion, dated to the Fourth Dynasty and excavated at Abu Sir, south of Giza. King Khufu’s cartouche is between its paws. A small statue of the king may originally have formed part of the piece.
