CINCINNATI - Pieces of Egyptian history began moving into the Tri-State Friday morning.
Two of the largest artifacts in "Cleopatra" exhibit are now at the Cincinnati Museum Center..
Carved from red granite, the Colossal King and Queen statues represent rulers from the Ptolemaic era. The king is more than 16 feet tall and weighs five and a half tons. The Queen is almost 16 feet tall and weighs four tons. The pair was pulled out of the Mediterranean Sea near Alexandria in 2000.
The exhibit opens to the public Feb. 18 through Sept. 5, 2011. It will then travel to three other American cities.
