Statue of Sekhmet found in Luxor

A 3,000-year-old statue of the lion-headed goddess Sekhmet has been unearthed at Luxor.

“They are of great artistic quality” Sourouzian said of the statues, which were found in four parts, including three busts and one headless torso, in the Kom El-Hettan archaeological area on Luxor’s west bank.

Sourouzian oversees the work of the Colossi of Memnon and Amenhotep III Temple Conservation Project, which is working to save the remains of the more than 3,000 year-old temple and eventually restore its dispersed artefacts to the site, to be presented in their original layout.
