The Pharaoh of Pop doesn’t quite have the same ring to it as The King of Pop, but visitors to Chicago’s Field Museum could swear that’s Michael Jackson's face on a 3,000-year-old Egyptian bust.
The spitting image limestone sculpture has been on display at the museum since 1988, but recently started drawing attention because of its likeness to MJ --- complete with disfigured nose.
Unfortunately the bust, which was carved sometime between 1550 B.C. and 1050 B.C., is of a woman and MJ likely never had the chance to see the statuette.
“I have no idea whether Jackson ever visited the museum,” a Field spokesperson said to the Sun-Times' Michael Sneed. “But the similarity between the limestone statue of a woman – which is about 3,000 years old --- and Jackson is astounding.”
I was going to add the "Remember The Time" video to this post for the obvious Egyptian connections and but something else caught my eye that I wanted to share with you instead...
A true Michael Jackson fan will love Kina Grannis's cover of "Remember the Time".
