This is the speaking statue of Amenhotep III of the 18th dynasty(new kingdom). It was said to hum a high pitch sound at sunrise after cracking in an earthquake. After the statue was repaired in modern time, the 'singing' stopped. Researchers believe that the sound was caused by the morning breeze entering the crack and causing the statue to resonate.
