I doubt it as she wasn't allowed photography equipment near the Valley ;)

Unfortunately not.

Travelling around Egypt you become aware though that still every day new things are discovered, tombs are opened to the public et cetera.

I see they unveiled another statue at Luxor this Tuesday - since you were there or did they just cover it up for the "unveiling"??

Note also
a. The claim that "(the kind of tourists drawn to) classical Egypt, Luxor, Aswan, Nile cruises ... are back to normal levels again," said Hisham El Demery, chief of Egypt's Tourism Development Authority."
and
b. another attack on a tourist destination - this time St Catherines area also on Tuesday

I'm afraid I may have missed it (so many large statues), but I heard from other people on the dahabiya that I am at right now that they saw it before they temporarily put a veil over it. I was in Luxor Temple on Saturday.

P.S.: I think it was covered after all when I was there, I think it is hidden under the white sheet to the right on the photo that I took Saturday. See
