" Statues of Ancient Egyptian Lioness Deity Sekhmet Uncovered in Luxor " (Ahram Online - Nevine El-Aref, 03.12.2017)

Quote:
"... at the King Amenhotep III funerary temple on Luxor’s west bank ... the black-granite statues have a maximum height of about two metres. Some statues depict Sekhmet sitting on a throne, holding the symbol of life in her left hand, while others show her standing and holding a papyrus sceptre before her chest. ... The mission began excavation work in 1998, and about 287 statues of Sekhmet have been unearthed since then. ...

Greetings, Lutz.
