Ancient Egyptian statue hidden inside a couch shipped by air

In Kuweit,
Customs officers discovered what seems to be a 170-cm-long Ancient Egyptian statue hidden inside a couch shipped by air. The statue was sent to the National Council for Culture, Arts and Letters (NCCAL) and is being examined in order to determine whether it belongs to the pharaonic era or not. A customs officer said a citizen came to collect office furniture that arrived from Egypt, and the statue was found during inspection. Action is pending until the examination results are complete.
The video shows, not a statue, but the lid of a mummiform coffin, looking as if it is in freshly-excavated condition.  Tragically, the video shows that the object was placed, face down, loose in the base of the sofa without any packing material and could easily have been damaged in transport.
