According to a museum, A 3,000-year-old bust that eerily resembles Michael Jackson

An ancient Egyptian limestone statue of an unidentified woman, dating back to the New Kingdom Period (1550 BC to 1050 BC), has gained attention since Michael Jackson’s death in 2009 due to its striking resemblance to the pop icon. The statue, on display at the Field Museum in Chicago since 1988, has been dubbed “The Pharaoh of Pop” by media.

The statue’s upturned nose and rounded eyes bear a distinct similarity to Jackson’s surgically altered face, and its partially disintegrated nose adds to the resemblance. Since a recent newspaper article pointed out the similarities, the museum has been inundated with inquiries from Jackson fans.

Although it is doubtful that the statue inspired Jackson’s physical appearance, the resemblance between the two is undeniable, according to museum curator Jim Phillips. He said, “I have to admit it, there are a number of very striking similarities. I don’t follow all the permutations of Michael Jackson’s physical appearance, but they do look a lot alike.”

While the “King of Pop” may not be physically present at the museum, visitors can still marvel at the “Pharaoh of Pop” and its eerie resemblance to the late pop icon.
