In the Egyptian Luxor discovered a new statue of the Sphinx. This was stated by the head of the Department of antiquities of the province Mohamed Abdel Aziz, reports Youm7.
Artifact discovered by workmen during the construction of a new road on the Avenue of the sphinxes between the Karnak and Luxor temples. The statue is not like the other sphinxes with RAM heads, and resembles the “classical” Sphinx in Giza, the lion with a human head.
The monument remains in the ground. According to Aziz, the statue cannot be removed because it could collapse from the sudden changes in the environment.
In 2014, in Luxor, was discovered the tomb of the brewer, which is more than 3200 years. As found by the archaeologists, the tomb in the form of the letter T belongs to Khonso Im Habu, who produced the beverage for rituals dedicated to the goddess Mut. On the walls of the burial discovered perfectly preserved paintings depicting scenes from the life of a brewer: from domestic to ritual.
