The statue is partly deteriorated with missing legs. He described the statue as "very distinguished" because it depicts the king in equal size to the god.
He went on saying that Amenhotep III's colossus is to be transported next week to GEM's conservation lab where it will be subjected to restoration and kept in storage until the opening of the GEM.
