Request for Nefertiti bust loan

A very brief item mentioning the request by Zahi Hawass for the loan of the Nefertiti bust, currently resident in Berlin: "Zahi Hawas, director of the Supreme Council of Antiquities, had the idea of at least getting the work on loan in case Germany did not accept to return it. There would be a signed agreement to return the work after a defined period. Next November will be the centennial of the foundation of the German Institute of Archeology, which would be a good place to make the agreement effective. So far the Egyptian Museum in Berlin has not responded."
See the above page for the rest of the story.
