The Great Sphinx Covered with Snow

According to the Wikipedia, the Great Sphinx of Giza is the oldest known monumental sculpture in the world. It is located on the Giza Plateau on the west bank of the Nile in Giza, Egypt.

A recent snow storm in Egypt partially covered the Sphinx. This is the first snow in Egypt in more than a century. Below is the Sphinx partially covered with snow.
