These Statues Depict Ancient Egyptian King As A Sphinx

Newly-discovered ancient statues show King Amenhotep III memorialized as a sphinx. The statues were excavated through the  Colossi of Memnon and Amenhotep III Temple Conservation Project, a 24-year-old project that aims to restore, build, and preserve the ancient temples. The sculptures are 26 feet high, which earns them their moniker as colossal statues. According to Egypt’s Ministery of Tourism and Antiquities, the artworks were made of limestone, and have undergone careful cleaning, strengthening, and restoration.
