And talking about Amarnan hypothetical female rulers, anyone know's who is portrayed in this Karnak sculpture. It is clearly female, wearing the red crown, and with the prominent belly of Amarnan rulers and the oblique eyes of Amarnan princesses. I found it by chance browsing in the net, although the phlog where I found it labelled it as "Nefertari".

Ankhesenamun really? I always thought it was Tutankhamun. Or was that the other one haha Laughing The breasts are probably a dead give away though.

This one is of Tutankhamun and Ankhesenamun. rather similiar, I'm assuming both statues are found in Luxor Temple? Correct?

Here is a better picture of the reconstructed statues of Amun and Amunet (with the features of Tutankhamun and Anchsunamun) in the Achmenu at Karnak. They are near the chamber of anchestors and were usurped by Horemhab.

Greetings, Lutz.

That is an awesome and well taken photograph of Tutankhamun and Ankhesenamun. Gives a clear image of the scenery around the two statues and environment they are currently at. Thankyou Lutz Wink

Wondering. Idea Will those statues soon be moved to a museum to be better cared for and preserved?

The Karnak-Tempel is a museum. As you can see the statues are in large parts no more original. They were rebuilt in their original location (following the inscriptions on the back).
