Thutmose II's arrows pierce a sheet of Asian copper.
Karnak Complex, Luxor, Egypt :
Now completely in ruins, the Temple of Mut was surrounded on three sides by a horse shoe-shaped lake. It was dedicated to the consort of Amon and comprised a pair of open courts, one following the other, and a sanctuary surrounded by ante-chambers. The construction extended through many generations from Amenhotep III to Ptolemaic times.
Among its many statues and murals is a grotesque figure of the god Bes, and at least 600 statues of the war-goddess Sekhmet in black granite. These surrounded the entire court, in places packed closely in double rows.
