Anubis to visit the Statue of Liberty

Arts Museum Journal (Stan Parchin)

In anticipation of the special exhibition Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs at Manhattan's Discovery Times Square Exposition (April 23, 2010-January 2, 2011), a towering five-ton sculpture of the Egyptian god Anubis will sail into New York Harbor on March 23, 2010. There it will be juxtaposed for a time with the majestic Statue of Liberty. Hopefully the massive work, measuring 7.6 m (25 ft.) in height, will then take up temporary residence in Shubert Alley, directly opposite the traveling show's last and largest American venue.
