A limestone relief that was stolen from Queen Hatshepsut's temple in Luxor was recently returned to Egypt. The relief, which is engraved with hieroglyphics, was stolen from the temple in 1975 and smuggled out of the country. It recently surfaced at an auction in Spain and was purchased by a British collector. Egypt's Ministry of Antiquities, working with the Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the British Museum, were able to prove that they were the rightful owners of the relief and it was returned to them. It will be placed back in its place at Queen Hatshepsut's temple, where restoration work is currently being done by Polish archaeologists. While Queen Hatshepsut is never mentioned by name in the Bible, there is evidence that she may have been the 'Pharaoh's daughter' who pulled Moses from the bulrushes and raised him in the Egyptian royal courts.
