Nigel J. Hetherington, the founder and owner of Past Preservers said “We are extremely proud to assist Factum Arte and its Founder Adam Lowe in some small way to brining his dreams to reality”
following the exhibition at the hotel Conrad, the replica will be de-installed and stored until its permanent location in Egypt has been decided.
