Thanks for posting about the discovery, Imakhu Menekh!  I hope that they can find the rest of the statue!  Here's another link with some more photos and information:

Wow--beautiful!

BTW, the second link (the one that Kai-Imakhu Neferu provided) also references an earlier story that's really interesting, about a large-scale statue of Djehuty as a baboon that was found earlier this year. They speculate that there may once have been an avenue of Djehuty statues at that temple. That would be awesome to see! ^_^

Quoted from KI Neferu's link:
"Many statues depicting the ancient Egyptian ruler have been found at the site, featuring him alongside different deities, such as Amun-Re, Re-Horakhti, Bastet and Sobek."

I would like to see these. :)

I would have loved to have seen the avenue of Djehuty statues and the rest. Awesome! I wish we could travel back in time.  :grin:
