    EG - "Look on my Works, ye Mighty…" Ozymandias statue found in mud

    Guardian:

    Look on my works, ye mighty: Ozymandias statue found in mud
    Archaeologists believe eight-metre statue found in Cairo slum
    is of Pharaoh Ramses II, who ruled Egypt in 13th century BC

    Ozymandias (Percy Shelley)

    I met a traveller from an antique land,
    Who said—“Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
    Stand in the desert. . . . Near them, on the sand,
    Half sunk a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
    And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
    Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
    Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
    The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed;
    And on the pedestal, these words appear:
    My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings;
    Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair!
    Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
    Of that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare
    The lone and level sands stretch far away.”
    Ramses II (Wiki)
