    Two massive stone statues of Pharaoh Amenhotep III. 1350 BC. Originally stood at the entrance to Amenhotep's mortuary temple, which is now in almost total ruins.

    Medinet Habu. West Bank.
    The main temple is the mortuary temple of Ramesses III (12th Century BC): "Its massive outer pylons are the most imposing of any temple in Egypt, and are decorated with colossal images of the king destroying captured enemies before the gods. The temple’s outer walls also depict important battle and victory scenes over the Libyans and Sea Peoples."

    Some of my favorite reliefs at Medinet Habu.

    This one, stylistically, was very unique.
