they won't be available for display in mid April 2010 , they will need enough time to finish studies and be cleaned and prepared for public, it may take a whille,
but anyway Egyptian museum in Cairo and Luxor museum have best collections of statues belong to this Era.

"they will need enough time to finish studies and be cleaned and prepared for public, it may take a whille,"

What would be the exact time to finish studies and cleaning so that the public can view it. Can't wait to see one.
