The GEM is looking impressive with the giant pharaonic statues installed. I think the juxtaposition of the ancient with the ultra modern works quite well.

I cant wait to go and see everything. The building looks fantastic and I only hope that the artifacts are properly labeled.

It’s got to be better than the 100 year old faded- ink labels on the Tahrir Square Museum exhibits. :lol:
