  Playing with the sphinx
by viddra

This sphinx is much smaller than the Great Sphinx of Giza, but it's valuable enough. It can't be said for sure whether it represents Amenhotep III or Rameses II, although it's more possible that it represents Rameses II since his colossal statue's lying a few steps away in the nearby museum.

Directions: Lower Egypt, Memphis
