Had no Idea that this was by no means the only Sphinx in accient Egypt. There are perhaps a thousand others along the Nile - from Luxor to Aswan. But then, this is by far the largest - Gigantic !!!
A beautifully preserved Sphinx with a ram's head at Karnak. There were hundreds of these bordering either side of a long path. The original idea was to connect the temple at Luxor with the Karnak complex and line the entire road with these, but it was never completed.
My buddy Sphinx ;-) Actually not the only Sphinx - just the biggest - this dude is the tallest statue in Egypt. We weren't allowed to go close enough to touch.
