Statue of Sekhmet (Medinet Habu Temple, Luxor)
Statue of the Goddess Sekhmet. This statue is located in the North-East Niche at the Migdol gate of Medinet Habu Temple, Luxor, Egypt.
The statue is believed to have been reappropriated by Ramesses III from the nearby mortuary temple of Amenhotep III (the site of the Colossi of Memnon), along with many other pieces of statuary and carved stones in a similar practice as with many other 19th century pharaohs.
