Statue of Senmut identified

A statue fragment in the Manchester Museum has been identified as having represented Senmut, the architect of the temple of Hatshepsut at Deir el-Bahari. It was long believed that it represented a priest of Amun named Userhat from the Middle Kingdom, but a recent analysis now points towards Senmut.
