About 10% of egyptians are coptic, an orthodox form of christianity with similarities to Greek Orthodox. The model sits beside the door for tourists and faithful that come to visit. Aswan is a city in the south of Egypt, stands on the east bank of the Nile at the first cataract and is a busy market and tourist center.
