A human-headed sphinx

Sunday 26 February 2006:
This entry is a day late but it part of a sequence that begins with yesterday’s entry.

Avenue of Sphinxes

The entrance to the temple of Wadi-el-Sebua is marked by a mini avenue of sphinxes,  in the first courtyard there are six human headed sphinxes (of which today’s picture is one).  In the next courtyard there are/were four falcon headed sphinxes. Saddly all four are badly damaged and are actually headless falcon headed sphinxes!
