Christie’s in London is being pressured to cancel the auction of a statue of Tutankhamun’s head after Egyptian authorities claimed that the bust might have been stolen from the Karnak temple in Luxor.

The 28.5cm-high statue is more than 3,000 years old and “exudes strength and serenity”, according to the Christie’s listing.
