Uncovering Moses, Joseph, and Abraham took many avenues, one of which was deeply studying the faces of the royal families. When I would observe a statue, I saw disparities concerning the faces, for often the dynasties and dates were correct, but sometimes the faces depicting certain royal family members were not the same from one statue to the next. Once I proved a face by factual inscriptions or by other means, it was added to my growing list. For instance, with Queen Tiye there were two other women who were mistakenly identified as her. In such cases, I would research the possibilities, and as with Amenhotep III, I discovered his mother actually ruled due to his young age; this was simply overlooked by other scholars. Once I had this method fluid, it became easy to see incorrect labeling. Soon it brought results, as with Thutmosis/Moses, Sitamun, Mutemwiya, Tiye, Tutankhamen, Smenkhere, and others.
Incorrect labeling can be a grave mistake, for one piece of misinformation will likely lead to additional errors. Say, for instance, a statue of Amenhotep IV was found in Memphis. The archaeologists will then proceed to search the entire area, right down to sifting the soil, since a foundation to a possible small palace was also found. In the palace they found evidence that the king was there on a certain date and he performed a ritual with the priesthood for the god Ptah. Also unearthed was a vase with the Amarna cartouche and a parchment piece stating that the king was almost poisoned. The scholars were stunned, but a great Egyptologist wrote a book on the subject and soon everyone remembered that Akhenaten had accepted the god Ptah. Not only that, but Akhenaten claimed he had never left Amarna, but now there was evidence to the contrary. Subsequently, someone examined the statue and its face and concluded it was not Akhenaten but Thutmosis. Scholars claimed Thutmosis was not a coregent king, yet the statue was of a king. Scholars also claim that Thutmosis died at an early age of about nine.
When evidence such as a statue is found, the correct person must be identified and labeled, or all the surrounding evidence may become tainted with false beliefs. For example, if the discoverer erroneously associates the articles with a king, this is added to all the previous knowledge gathered about this king, yet any new evidence should have rightly been credited to someone else. It’s like finding evidence that the king was deeply into horses because evidence about him is all over the stable grounds. But, if in actuality it is his brother who was into horses, this is imprinting false evidence to the wrong person and not crediting the right person. As more research is gathered over the years, one man may thus gain a false history because of previous wrong associations, when in fact one was totally different from the other; thus, a lazy man may be credited as being energetic due to erroneously applied evidence, or one man might always ride on horseback while the other never did and was always transported by palanquin. Or, one might be an every-night visitor to the harem and the other was now believed to be a man with a powerful sex drive.
The biggest discoveries in Ancient Voices were: Queen Tiye, Mutemwiya, and Sitamun; and Akhenaten, Thutmosis, Smenkhere, and Tut. Concerning Queen Tiye, she is almost always wrongly labeled when in actuality, the rendition is of Mutemwiya or Sitamun—and their faces are quite different. An Egyptologist once told me that the discovery of statues in KV 64 could not be Sitamun for she did not have the royal headdress. I took another look at the statues and saw what was going on, but I could not convince him, for he was “the educated expert” and I was not. However, Sitamun was a queen only for a short while. Everyone knew and respected Sitamun like a queen, but why would she be depicted wearing a crown so many years later? There surely must be a reason. Furthermore, she was half-Hebrew blood and half-Egyptian, so in essence she had two crowns.
The following pictures have been placed in order, generally as they can be found from Chapter One to the end of Ancient Voices. However, I have added some extra pictures to prove a number of additional points. There are also a few in the end that are my own and worth seeing.
The Royal Lotus
The Egyptian blue lotus is the flower of ancient Egypt. For spiritual reasons it was said that Atum, the Creator God, landed upon Earth in a lotus. In normal, everyday, ancient Egypt, the lotus was popular at parties, for to “dip the lotus” is to immerse it into wine and then sniff the flower, thereby producing a euphoric sensation.
Directly below are two statues of Akhenaten.
Directly below is a statue labeled “Akhenaten”, but it is easy to see this is another person altogether; it is Thutmosis.
Below is another statue labeled “Akhenaten”, yet it is actually Thutmosis. The statue depicts a man wearing the blue battle helmet, which was likely a portrayal of the time he led the campaign to Kush. As with surviving statues, the detail is nearly lifelike, for it does have incredible detail even though it is barely the height of a man’s hand!
Below are two pictures of Yuya (male, on the left), and to the right are two pictures of Tuya (Thuya/Thuya).
The sarcophagus (coffin) directly above is classified as “Tuya”, but one look at the face, and I see Sitamun. A similar example exists with Tutankhamen, where an outer coffin is clearly his brother Smenkhere. The giveaway about Sitamun is her face and the similarity with her mother’s. Also, in the tomb of Yuya and Tuya, she left many articles, like different-sized chairs with her name on them—something only a daughter or granddaughter would do. A loving daughter at the time of her parents’ deaths would not hesitate to donate a coffin and gold mask for their proper burial. Now. if Queen Tiye was a factual daughter, where is the evidence? And if Tuya’s gold mask had the face of Queen Tiye, it just wouldn’t fool any mortal, much less the gods.
Below is a picture of Sitamun, but it made me realize the face of Sitamun was on page 116 in Peter Clayton’s book, Chronicle of the Pharaohs, was identified incorrectly. [See this picture directly below, under the Web site listings.] It is mistakenly labeled in the book as, “The face of the gilded wooden coffin of Tuya, mother of Queen Tiy”.
Other Web sites to check out for more pictures of Sitamun:
At this Web page, there’s a video. Sitamun’s face (directly below) can clearly be seen at 0:42, 0:44, and 1:01 [on the clock].
Below is a picture labeled as “Amenhotep III and Queen Tiy”, while it is actually Amenhotep III and his mother Mutemwiya. As you can see, this is not Queen Tiye.
Below is a picture of a statue labeled Queen Tiye, but it is easy to see that it is Mutemwiya, the mother of Amenhotep III and the queen.
Below are pictures of the true Queen Tiye. It is easy to see that she is not at all the woman in the pictures above.
Directly beneath are pictures of King Tutankhamen.
Below is a picture of Smenkhere, the brother or twin of Tutankhamen, from the second coffin.
For nearly 29 years I thought that my personal feelings about Tutankhamen’s tomb were not addressed. What got me looking closely at photos of every article that had been found in Tutankhamen’s tomb was the fact that the moment I saw the inner golden mask and the outer mask in the Cairo Museum, I immediately realized that one was not of Tutankhamen but his brother Smenkhere. As of today [28 April 2010], I came across this Web site: www.nicholasreeves.com/item.aspx?category=collections&id=261
At this Web site, Nicholas Reeves’ detailed lecture helps to explain some of my beliefs, for this tomb revealed the whip of Thutmosis. For years, I knew that often when a king, queen, prince, or princess was buried, if it happened unexpectedly, things would be tossed into the tomb by family members, as with Sitamun and Tuya and Yuya, her likely parents. Then there are labels that clearly show the Egyptologist who labeled it was utterly thinking from his past education and not common sense. I remember at least two small gilded wooden figures of Tutankhamen, and both had undeniable breasts. One was likely Nefertiti, for on the head was either the White Crown (Upper Egypt) or the Atef, used for religious ceremonies. Such things always supported my belief that labels were applied and no one has dared to question them . . . or no one has realized this.
Below is the iconic bust of Nefertiti, which is part of the Ägyptisches Museum Berlin collection, currently on display in the Neues Museum in Berlin.
Under this description is a picture of the Nile River that can be found in Ancient Voices. This is taken in Luxor, which was called Thebes in ancient times.
Below is a picture of Joseph (of the coat of many colors fame). He is also known as Amenemhet IV.
Directly beneath is a picture of a statue. The two depicted are Amenhotep III and Amon-Ra.
This picture below is the mural of Abraham’s family and Hagar. It is located in Beni Hasan in Egypt and is dated circa 1890 B.C.
The picture below is of the Statue of Liberty in the early 19th century at night. At this time, it served as a lighthouse in New York’s harbor.
These are more modern-day photos of the Statue of Liberty. The top is a bird’s-eye view of the statue, fort, and island.
The sketch below shows how there are two sides to even what you may see.
Do you see an old woman or a young beautiful woman?
This is a picture of a sacred boat discovered near the Great Pyramid. Although it is approximately 5,000 years old, it is almost in pristine condition! If you’re a nautical individual or carpenter, this alone could transport you to Egypt.
Below is a picture of the pyramid Kafre showing the remaining outer layer of limestone on the top. This shows the remains of the original layer covering the pyramid, and approximately how the three once looked with smooth and sharp corners. The reason this happened was not due to the elements such as the weather or wind; it was man being a thief, stealing the stone to build some of early Cairo. Some have
claimed it was due to a large earthquake, but I don’t subscribe to this fully, for other structures in the surrounding area, such as the Mortuary and Valley Temples, would have likely shifted.
The picture below that is a view that you would see looking up the pyramid, and it shows just how massive they actually are. In 1984 when I arrived in Egypt for the first time, I climbed about three to four stories up, and realized that each stone was like climbing a high stone wall. In ancient Egyptian times, you couldn’t climb them, for you would slide right back down. Now think about this just for a moment: How did the builders place each limestone block on top of the first and work their way to the top? This remains somewhat of a mystery. It’s likely they worked from the top down, but once you think about the difficulty of that project, the realization drives the mystery about the pyramids even deeper. Even if you have a titanic workforce to do the outer layer, each block of limestone would have to be lifted from each successive block of giant granite to the next above, all the way to the top. Today, we could manufacture many small and strong forklifts, one for each block. Yet, we’re talking at least 5,000 years ago! Such a workforce and the skill required just for this task would be an engineering marvel, for remember, every stone had angles with one side that could not be chipped or broken. Also, today our high-tech steel cables and cranes would safely lift and support even the blocks over 100 tons, but scholars claim ancient ropes did the job and all by copper tools. However, even if they had steel cables, how did they transfer the limestone up the sides?
