A life-size statue would usually make visitors of the National Portrait Gallery in London admire and strike a pose with it. As part of the curiosity of the subject visitors' eyes, they go to those Scholars of Middle East and Egyptologists to recognize the names and learn something about them. On the other hand, Edward William Lane is different from those people who were inspired by those life-size statues life histories; his mother Sophia Gardiner who has a very interesting story as a sister and daughter to her siblings and parents had the greatest impact on Lane. Additionally, Lane's education, which was initiated by his father before going to grammar schools, wherein he learned almost everything he knew in his researches and gave him the ability to learn continuously, is enumerated and discussed.
