The Avenue of Sphinx's

So here we are presented with the completion of part of the avenue of sphinx's at Luxor. A complicated tale to resurrect an ancient processional way between Karnak temple and Luxor temple. The project may be one of the best examples of the power of the former regime to bully the Egyptian people to this extravagant and unnecessary end.
