when this statue was made? who made it? I think champollion like all the french respected the egyptian civilization. the problem is who made it, when and who put it on display.
BARTHOLDI Is the sculptor of the statue, and he was the one who created the Liberty statue carrying the torch of freedom .Thank you so much for asking.
it was done in 1875 !!!! hellow wolrd.....!!!!
Champollion did not respect the egyptian civilisation , he dedicated his life to it.....without him all our ancient heritage would still be buried under the sands...
Mohamed Ghazi I don't know if you are aware but the statue of the liberty was done for Egypt !!! Bartholdi met with the khedive Ismail in the world expo in paris where he was prensenting his champollion statue in the egyptian pavilion .The Khedive place an order for a statue representing the liberty and was to be placed on the entrance of the suez canal. The name was supposed to be "La liberté éclairant l'orient'. And it looked like an Egyptian women . But as The khedive Ismail went way...

But as The khedive Ismail went way over budget for the suez inauguration , he cancelled the order at the very last minute and Bartholdi sold his project to the US a couple of years later.
TOTALLY UN ACCEPTABLE... IMMEDIATE CORRECTIVE ACTION IS NEEDED.... TO KEEP THE BRIGHTNESS AND IMAGE OF THE FRENCH CULTURE THAT RESPECTED HUMANITY AS WELL AS THE ANCIENT EGYPTIAN CULTURE...
Appreciate your very true comment Mr.Yanni, best regards.
THX DEAR SIR...OSTAZ MOHAMED...
You most welcome, thank you so much and look forward to your friendship and continuous communications.
To anyone who involve them selves in such heroic act, I thanks them and keep ip the good job.
I don't think we need to say anything, the film speaks for itself.
انا بحبك قوى يا احلى واجدع ممثله فى مصر والعالم العربى اتمنى اكون من اصدقائك يكون ليا الشرف ضفينى لو سمحتى بموت فيكى
ربنا يخليكى لكل اللى بيحبوكى
something wrong with this statue...i don't think it' for real...no way a global university do such thing...
صباح الخير يا استاذه عليا . التمثال للاسف الشديد حقيقى..وكما رأيت فى الفيديو موجود فى احد مداخل السربون . ولقد ارسلت الفيديو الى وزارات الثقافه والاثار والخارجيه ...الفرنسيه والمصريه ...وأيضآ الى اليونسكو هنا فى باريس ....ولم يهتم أحد .
spoiling such history...is a real disaster :(
is this the head of akhenaton? I wonder but knowing the french they love egyptology! how come?
Thank you Naglaa hanim for signing the petition, yes that is Ikhnaton's head , and I totally agree with you that it is very odd that Champollion who translated the Hieroglyph language can announce his triumph like ordinary hunter who get a photo with his prey, not the country were civilization was born.
Since it is Akhnaton I can guess why
Hope all my dear friends to help signing this petition.
Thank you so much.
I'm still unable to comprehend why we don't share and sign this petition and take the pledge, please join us defending our civilization, culture and country.
the first action to be taken is removing the statues of Champollion form the Egyptian museum immediately
This is absolute humiliation to all Egyptians and to our History, shame on them , shame on them ..
هي دي حرية الإبداع اللي بينادي بها الفنانون ولو حاولتم الاعتراض سيقولون انكم رجعيين.
أنا ضد حرية الإبداع التي تهين الآخر وتتعدى على كرامة الناس.
وإن كانت الفنون هكذا فلتسقط الفنون التي تحض على الكراهية بين الشعوب.
دي مسخرة ، كيف يجرؤا في فرنسا معاملة حضارتنا بهذا الأسلوب السيئ ، هل نسى العالم أجمع إن حضارة مصر هي أقدم الحضارات ، ومنها استفادت حضارات العالم ، وبالطبع استفادت حضارة فرنسا من الحضارة المصرية والتي نفتخر انها حضارتنا!
