The research paper discusses the problem of distorting the body proportions in Ramses II statues during the inadequate restoration operations carried out in the 21st century in Egypt. It also discusses the correct artistic body proportions and formation of Ramses II, which must be followed when assembling and restoring statues depicting this figure, at the same time taking into consideration other, unrestored statues, reliefs and paintings of the same subject. In addition, it looks at global restoration technologies that can help to solve the problem of improper restoration in Egypt.
