Ramses II Went through a Rehearsal for its Move

Afbeelding

CAIRO.- A replica of the statue of Ramses II, weighing 83 tons, went through its last “rehearsal” to substitute the original before it is moved to the new egyptian museum. The gigantic replica, 11.5 meters high, was transported from the centric plaza of Tahir to the new Great Egyptian Museum, near tje pyramids, in a nightly voyage that took eight hours.

With this rehearsal, the Supreme Council of Antiquities of Egypt wants to be sure that no unexpected risks are taken when they move the original piece next August 25.

Archaeologists expect that the transportation of the statue of Ramses II will preserve it since it has been severely deteriorated by acoustic and environmental contamination that it has suffered since it was installed in 1954 ib front of the main railway station in El Cairo

At 02:00 local time (00.00 GMT) the replica of the statue started its journey of 30 kilometers, the same that the original Hill cover, sculpted 3,000 years ago with granite blocks from Asuan situated 950 kilometers to the south of El Cairo.

A forklift lifted the colossal replica an placed in a vertical position in a metallic box before putting it in a platform, specially designed, that with the truck´s cabin measures 52 meters.

Four flags of Egypt decorated the vehicle that completed its 5 kilometer per hour journey and even reduced its speed on bridges and near trees to guarantee the security of the statue.

A police escort and several buses filled with engineers from Arab Contractors, responsible for the Project and archaeologists accompanied the truck to study the possible risks which may be found when the original statue is moved.

Even though it was a Friday, a festive day for Muslims and that the streets where practically empty, the journey obliged the closing of streets so as not to disturb the journey of the colossal statue and the truck, which together weighed 240 tons.

Some trees had to be cut along the way to facilitate the passing of Ramses II, one of the most important pharaohs that ruled ancient Egypt.

Ramses transfer rehearsal proved successful

A rehearsal to transfer a replica of the statue of Ramses II from downtown Cairo to the Grand Museum of Egypt on the Cairo-Alexandria desert road has proved successful.
Over eight hours starting from 2:00 am Friday (23:00 pm GMT), the statue's replica moved through Cairo streets until it reached its final destination.
Hundreds of Egyptians lined the streets, cheering and greeting the pharaoh.
A huge steel cage has been constructed around the statue to protect it.
Friday's trial cost some LE I million, while the total cost of the transfer process cost around LE 6 million.

Concrete base of Ramses II disconnected

The concrete base of the giant statute of Pharaoh Ramses II in downtown Cairo has been disconnected safely, Director of the Arab Contractors Company Ibrahim Mehleb said Saturday.
The company, in charge of a project to move the statue to a new location, affirmed that absolutely no harm came to the Pharaoh in the process.

The 125-tonne statue will be moved next week to a more serene home near the great Pyramids from a congested square in downtown Cairo named after him in a bid to save the statue from pollution.

Exhaust fumes from trains, cars, and buses as well as subway vibrations, are damaging the 3,200-year-old granite statue at Ramses Square, its home since the early 1950s when it was taken from a temple at the site of the ancient Egyptian capital of Memphis.

Officials have discussed moving the statue for more than a decade as experts debated where it should go the location at the Grand Museum of Egypt was recently agreed upon.
Contractors successfully transported a replica last month as a test.

Midnight crowds farewell Ramses II from Cairo
August 26, 2006
CAIRO: Tens of thousands of people lined the streets of Cairo yesterday to farewell the colossal statue of Ramses II as it began its journey from the polluted city to a spot near the Pyramids and closer to its original site.

After years of controversy and logistical headaches, the high-risk operation to move the 100-tonne, 11m-high pink granite statue in one piece got under way at its scheduled time of 1am, local time.

The statue of the greatest warrior king in ancient Egypt - a Cairo landmark - moved slowly through the city centre in its sarcophagus of scaffolding and protective plastic. "We're going to miss you," shouted 12-year-old Issam Abu Zaid, as the floodlit convoy cranked into motion, starting Ramses' return journey from the square outside Cairo's main station to the Giza plateau.

The heart of one of the world's most populous cities turned into a huge carnival as people hung flags on their balconies and climbed on lampposts, buses or mosques to watch the statue pass.

Thousands of policemen were deployed in a desperate bid to form a cordon allowing for the safe passage of the convoy. The statue - mounted on a huge mobile base and towed by a massive truck - was expected to take at least seven hours to complete the 35km journey.

Defeated by pollution in Africa's largest metropolis, the ancient warrior king will make his new home at the Grand Egyptian Museum, near the Giza Pyramids.

The statue was brought to Cairo in 1954, where it soon became one of the most recognisable landmarks in the city, the first sight to greet passengers coming out of the train station.

Two years earlier, a group of young officers led by Gamal Abdel Nasser had overthrown British-backed King Farouk. Nasser wanted to use Ramses II, whose giant statue was discovered in 1882 in the ancient capital of Memphis, to symbolise the authentically Egyptian roots of the new republic.

"It was chopped up in eight pieces and reassembled. Not a single archeologist was present. It was the decision of a military dictatorship," said Zahi Hawass, the head of Egypt's antiquities.

The transfer was practised last month with a fake statue. Some Egyptian archeologists, politicians and intellectuals opposed the transfer, alleging it was decided under US pressure because Ramses II, believed to be the pharaoh who oppressed the Jews and forced Moses to take his people out of Egypt, was perceived as an anti-Israeli symbol.

In its early days, the statue and the fountain at its feet were visible from afar, but they were gradually hemmed in by a mass of overpasses and pedestrian bridges. The square, which lies outside the city's main train station, is reputed to be the most polluted spot in Egypt.

Blindfolded by a cast of plaster designed to protect it along the perilous transfer, the statue moved through an urban web of congested streets..

Ramses II reigned over Egypt for 68 years, from 1304 to 1237 BC, and is believed to have lived to the age of 90. He covered the country with monuments to his exploits and his mummy, on display in the National Museum in Cairo, is one of the country's biggest tourist attractions.

Ramses II moves to a new home

Ramses II's giant statue has reached its new home near the Pyramids plateau.

Culture Minister Farouq Hosni and Secretary General of the Supreme
Council of Antiquities Zahi Hawas were on hand at the new seat of the statue to receive it there.

Cairo Governor Abdel-Azim Wazir and Giza governor Fathi Saad as well as a host of public figures attended the historic event.

The process of transferring the statue of Pharaoh Ramses II began Thursday night from downtown Cairo.

The statue is carried to taken to its new location in the Grand Egyptian Museum near the Great Pyramids in al-Haram area.

Ramses II was an Egyptian pharaoh of the 19th dynasty. He was born in 1302 BC. At age fourteen, Ramses II was appointed Prince Regent by his father. He is believed to have taken the throne in his early 20s and to have ruled Egypt from 1279 BC to 1213 BC for a total of 66 years.

He was once said to have lived to be 99 years old, but it is more likely that he died in his 90th or 92nd year.
