PanARMENIAN.Net - A new statue of the Sphinx has been discovered during the development of a road project in Luxor, Mohamed Abdel Aziz, director of antiquities in Luxor, revealed, according to local media reports.

Abdel Aziz explained that the statue found on a road connecting Luxor Temple to the Karnak temple complex, has a human body and a lion's head.

The antiquities director added that the statue won’t be taken above the ground for now as it can collapse due the abrupt change in the environment.
