    Monumental Statue Of Black Egyptian Pharaoh Found

    Archaeologists have discovered a monumental statue of an ancient black Egyptian pharaoh of the Nubian 25th Dynasty in Dangeil, Sudan, about 350 kilometres northeast of the capital, Khartoum.
    The granite statue of the warrior pharaoh Taharqa weighs one ton, according to its discoverer, Dr Caroline Rocheleau of the North Carolina Museum of Art, who added it was: More than life-size and weighs over one ton.

    The statues of two other Nubian pharaohs were also discovered. Rocheleau’s blog is quoted on the DNA website describing the statues as having:

    Great muscular bodies with an inscribed back pillar… and lovely feet on the statue base, but we are missing their heads and their lower legs.
    Taharqa was ruler of both Egypt and Nubia (Kush) during the 25th Dynasty, which was based in Nubia, which had a long history of pyramid building, apparently independent of Egypt. His reign is dated from 690 BC to 664 BC. The pharaoh is mentioned in the Bible in the Book of Kings under the name ”Tirhakah.” 2 Kings 19:9 says:

    Now Sennacherib received a report that Tirhakah, the Cushite king of Egypt, was marching out to fight against him. So he again sent messengers to Hezekiah with this word:

    ”Kush” refers to areas south of Egypt, including Nubia.
    A website dealing with ancient Nubia says it was the homeland of Africa’s earliest indigenous black culture, reaching back over 5,000 years. The site has a wealth of information and photos of this ancient kingdom.
    The National Geographic magazine dealt in depth with Egypt’s neglected black pharaohs and described the majesty of Taharqa’s reign and his success against the mightiest power of the ancient Middle East at the time, Assyria. Eventually, King Essrhaddon of Assyria would defeat Pharaoh Taharqa, who continued to rule in Nubia, despite his defeat.

    The little-known 25th Dynasty produced striking statues and paintings of its black rulers, as well as of their restoration of a declining Egyptian civilisation.
    Modern-day Sudan has more pyramids than Egypt, a reflection both of the ancient Nubian culture and the later civilisation of Meroe.

    He wasn't black. They just carved him that way because they didn't have the tools to give him the more linear caucasoid features.

    lol, they didn't have the tools to carve a face properly in stone yet they could build pyramids (something we cannot replicate with today's technology) and invented the first battery...

    That statue is of the Nubian 25th Dynasty, which predates the construction of the pyramids by 2500 years. But you're right, by the time the technology for the pyramids was brought into existence, so was the know-how to carve more realistic sculptures. That's why sculptures of pharoahs made after the construction of the pyramids have slender noses and thinner lips.

    You may be right about the battery as well. It is strange tho how today all the batteries in all the clock radios in Africa have Duracell or Energyzer or some other western company's name on them, and are not a domestic product. It's also curious how the technology failed to come down the African generations.

    perhaps, but I think its a bit assumptive to say that they were unable to carve faces accurately...

    How else would you explain the differing characteristics of sculptures built after the erection of the pyramids?

    over the years Egypt became a center of the Mediterranean world- there were so many ethnicities mixing that it's not surprising features changed...

    I'll concede that earliest Egyptians may have been black.

    But then you must concede that the many innovations of science which made Egypt a great civilization came after what you have called "ethnic mixing."

    not saying that either are necessarily true, rather, I have no evidence to assume they looked differently than the way they presented themselves in artwork... Earlier work shows them as black and mirrors works from the Kingdom of Kush, later works show an obviously lighter complexion which could be explained by the great number of ethnicities that interacted in the region...

    Then again, I could just be pulling this out of my ass- point is I don't want to assume the reasons for things without doing extensive research...

    dude, where do you cats get this info from? necessity is the mother of invention! if a toll was needed, it wwas made. prior to the building of the greeat pyramids there were very few sllender nosed people in the area. period. europeans and arabs were jus not there at the time. in fact, for quite some time.

    I doubt they didn't have the tools.

    I'm going to have to go with Nolb on this. Diverse culture is what most-likely changed the way sculptures looked, because of different and new mixed facial traits that were being created.

    I think I can speak for Joro and say that he has no idea if these sculptures predate the building of the pyramids. He did, in fact, pull his facts out of thin air.

    He's also disappointed that no poster showed any sort of genuine concern for the veracity of this discourse. (No one bothered to look it up!) This troubles him much.
