Egyptian SPHINX of Amenhotep III Artifact Carved Sculpture Statue 7" ww.Neo-Mfg.com Home decor
Size: 7.25" long x 2 7/8" wide x 4 3/8" tall
Even without the inscription, the facial features of this faience sphinx would identify it as Amenhotep III.
The graceful body of the lion transforms quite naturally into human forearms and hands. 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 faience statuettes. Another small faience sphinx from a later period may be seen in gallery 127 (1990.25).
