I want all Egyptian artifacts returned to Egyptian museums. ALL OF THEM. All the temples that were stolen from Egypt and rebuilt other places need to be back. That’s it.

Egyptian antiquities rooms

Colossal statues from Tanis, Karnak and Luxor. Henry IV’s Gallery,

room 12. Louvre Museum.

Egyptian Hall of the Louvre

Ivory Unguent Box of Queen Nefertari.
This lenticular box with a sharp shoulder and flat swivel lid sits on a cylindrical foot. Around the outer edge of the lid and on one of the flat surfaces for the knobs used to close the container are incised circles. The tiny figure of a hedgehog, associated with the cycle of death and rebirth, sits in front of the other knob. On the lid are the cartouches of Ramesses II and his first principal wife, Nefertari. The purpose of the box is uncertain, but it was likely used for cosmetics.
