dc.descriptionStatue of the god Amun protecting King Horemheb, three-quarter view of proper right; Another of the highlights of the Luxor Museum is the modern bright gallery where statues from the Luxor temple cachette are on display. Over a period of years most of the space inside the temple where pious nobles could place their statues became used up, so to alleviate this problem the priests took several of the existing statues and buried them within the temple precincts. This had the double advantage of clearing space for new offerings, and also preserving the sculpture in near perfect condition.en_US
