A 3,000-year-old Egyptian statue, which has been found to be a key piece in the study of the development of Egyptian New Kingdom Art, was recently discovered at Chautauqua Institution. The piece was in a crate in the corner of Chautauqua’s Hospitality Room, probably for decades. Originally, the black granite statue was in the temple of Uat in Nebesheh, a town located in the marshy, Delta region of Egypt.
