The Four Toed Statue from this weeks episode of LOST looks like the statue of Ramses II that was in the ancient capital of Egypt Memphis. The body, clothing, arms and hands look very similar. The statue on LOST is holding an Ankh in each hand. You can click on the thumbnail on the right to see a larger version of that picture.
The previous post was about the Ankh, but it is basically a symbol of life.
