Licensed under PD
One of a pair of 30-meter (50-ft) statues of Amenhotep III that once stood before the pharaohs mortuary temple in the Theban Necropolis on the west bank of the Nile opposite Luxor.

The rest of the temple was dismantled, and the materials used for other construction projects. The statues were called the "Colossi of Memnom" by Egypts late Ptolemaic (Greek) rulers who associated them with the myth of Memnon.
