Hawass: Do Modern Technologies Show Real Faces of Pharaohs?

Egyptian archaeologist Dr. Zahi Hawass said that no matter how modern techniques work to restore the faces of the ancient Egyptians, their real look will not be shown.

In the past years, there were several attempts to restore the face of King Tutankhamun by several French, American, and Egyptian teams, but all of them showed faces that were not related to the Golden Pharaoh.

Hawass pointed out that there is no archaeological or linguistic evidence that the Seti I lived in the era of the Prophet Moses. There are no traces related to God's prophets at all, and everyone who concludes this matter is nothing but fools and myths.

"The studies throughout the past years were conducted by foreigners, and they took parts from them," he added. "Whoever conducted the Xray rays of Tutankhamun’s mummy stole part of the mummy."

"Those who conducted research on the mummy of Ramses to discover whether he was the Pharaoh in the Moses story or not and his hair was stolen," he said. "The hair was restored again, but we could not prove whether he was Pharaoh in the Moses story or not. And we cannot through CT scans know that the mummy died by drowning, the only thing that proves that is the lung which is not present inside the mummy."

Hawass went on saying: "We must separate in archaeology religion and antiquities permanently because all the kings of the pharaohs were not specified if they were living during an era of the prophets or not."

"The identity of the Pharaoh of Egypt is not specified until now, whether as the Torah says that the pharaoh was two persons not one, or as mentioned in the Holy Qur’an that the Pharaoh of Egypt was one, but neither of them specifies who they are at all in the archaeological evidence," he explained.
