An ancient Egyptian bust has been drawing visitors to a US museum – because it looks like Michael Jackson.

The 3,000-year-old relic has been on display since 1988 at the Field Museum in Chicago.

But it is only recently that fans have pointed out its similarity to the late King of Pop, even down to the disfigured nose.

A museum spokesperson told a US newspaper: 'The similarity between the limestone statue of a woman – which is about 3,000 years old – and Jackson is astounding.'

The spokesperson added: 'I have no idea whether Jackson ever visited the museum.'

The limestone bust was carved sometime between 1550BC and 1050BC.
