Where do people get info for their web sites, copy it off some one else's web sites.
I first saw this image in winy-pedia and I began to ask where the actual image exists.
It is supposed to be a picture of Amose driving out the Hyksos... winy-pedia removed the image from their page, but it still exists here:
You have a picture of a chariot with the information that the Hyksos were involved in that picture.
Where is this image located in Egypt or is it just something some one created and presented it as an Egyptian painting?
The trick is to create a fake image or copy an actual image from a wall in Egypt and add false information to it.
Even in the best protected tombs, there is usually fading of paint in some areas and cracking of paint. This image of Ahmose driving out the Hyksos, looks like it is fresh off photo shop... not a bit of aging any where?
Since I started asking where these original pictures were wikipedia authors started deleting their images of the Hyksos? ( depicts Ahmose I striking down a Hyksos soldier now missing here )
They still have the thumb nail here, but click on it and the full image is gone.... it now says "This image was moved to Wikimedia Commons from en.wikipedia using a bot script. All source information is still present. It requires review. Additionally, there may be errors in any or all of the information fields; information on this image should not be considered reliable and the image should not be used until it has been reviewed and any needed corrections have been made"
Even IF The image exists on a wall in Egypt, there would have to be hieroglyphs that use the term Hyksos in the caption.... where is it?
