Underwater Sphinx


A sphinx in the outer court of the temple of Ramesses II at el-Sebua. When, in the 1960's, the High Dam was being constructed, this temple that was built by Ramesses II, and is now usually referred to as the Temple of Wadi al-Sabua (Wadi el-Sebua) but originally known as the "House-of-Amun", was salvaged (in 1964) and moved to a new, elevated site several kilometers to the northwest.
