Uh ... I dunno ... That just does not look like a Ramesses to me. Looks more like a Joe. Joe from Jersey, I am sure, I knew that guy!

I'm curious about what ancient Egyptians looked like. I'm thinking modern Arab looks but maybe that is wrong, the Ramesses II image here doesn't look like that. I guess the Arabs came from the east later on. Maybe the ancient Egyptians looked more like berber people, I guess they are more native to north Africa.

The DNA studies so far carried out show that for the most part modern Egyptians are not quite the same as ancient ones due to the inflow of non Egyptians over millenia.

People in Egypt today generally do not look like Nefertiti.


But Ancient Egyptians can, at least with Nefertiti, look like modern Italians such as Sophia Loren, or, Levantines, not Arabs from Arabia, as you can have people from Lebanon and Syria with similar-ish looks, the Alawites, or from the Caucasus, Circassians. The Levant, Caucasus and Black Sea area in general, even extending into central and western Europe, features prominently as a part of the DNA make up of Ancient Egyptians.

Historian William Langer wrote - “The population of both Upper and Lower Mesopotamia in prehistoric times BELONGED TO THE BROWN or Mediterranean race. While this basic stock persisted in historical, times especially in the south, it became increasingly, mixed especially with broad-headed Armenoid peoples from the northeastern mountains owing to the recurrent incursions of mountain tribes into the plain.” Encyclopedia of World History, Houghton Mifflin Company Boston 1972

Egyptians as descendants from babylonians were  haired Caucasoids, they were only ruled by a fair haired, blue eyed Aryan nobility - hence the blue eyed statues etc that appear are always of Sumerian royals or nobles.


Because they were possessed only by those of the higher classes (there was an ancient physique difference in class). Blue eyes in the ancient world denoted the venerated or nobility, just as did blonde or fair hair. In sharp contrast the lower class masses were always dark haired and dark eyed. Blue eyes and fair hair because of their rarity certianly became the aesthetic appeal of most ancient civilizations (Greece, Rome, Egypt, Mesopotamia etc). Most Gods of ancient myths are deified kings or royal members and so blue eyed Gods actually represent a historic population. Most antrhopologists and historians know that the ancients modeled their Gods on a section of their own population. This is why afrocentrism is wrong on every civilization. Virtually all the Gods of all European and Near Eastern myths are blonde and blue eyed. This even extends to India where the Aryans (Indo-Europeans) penetrated. The Rig-Veda describes the main Indian God Indra as yellow haired and blue eyed.


I cannot remove the highlights. These are are result of copy paste from an app with dark mode enabled
