Amenhotep III Sphinx Egyptian Statue


This 4" X 2.75" X 3" blue Amenhotep lll Egyptian sphinx statue is the perfect home or altar decor. In Egypt, the sphinx was viewed as a protector and a benevolent guardian. The combination of the lion's body and the human head is interpreted as symbolic of strength and intelligence. In this form, the sphinx combines the protective power of the lion with the royal function of offering to the gods. The even tone of the fine blue glaze and the almost flawless condition of this sculpture make it unique among ancient Egyptian statues.
