See my notes about Karnak and the statues of King Tut and his wife. Here's a Pharaoh with more of an ego problem... This is his wife, pictured with him - check out the scale. Yes, that's his hand and knee.
A statue of the famous boy king and his wife at Karnak. (This is the guy whose tomb was discovered only recently in the Valley of the Kings - undisturbed by grave robbers and containing vast amounts of treasure). It interested me because King Tut's wife is portrayed here as being the same size as him - all of the other Pharaoh's liked to shrink their wives to about knee height for statues - some ego thing.
Umaid Bhavan is one of the modern palaces completed just before India's independence . Today, it has three sections. A museum, the residence of the king, and an exclusive deluxe hotel.
