A little joke for the friends that are following on TE my egyptian trip ;)
Surely it's quite surprising to see snow on a sphinx... but not so much if U R in Turin.
Following our 'egyptian fever' today we chose to visit the egyptian musem in this town, one of the most important out of Egypt. When you reach the town from the highway starting in Milan you are welcomed by this large statue to promote the museum. I suggest you a visit because it's wonderful!

Is this an original statue or a replica? In any case the shot is excellent and having snow in “Egypt” (I mean Turin) is probably not that rare. Well done.

Interesting shot. Certainly stands out and makes you believe that global cooling is coming.

Al ver la imagen, pensé ¿nieve en Egipto? no puede ser :)
Lo aclaré enseguida con tu nota.
Bonito encuadre de la esfinge nevada con el fondo gris.

Good replies and good photography, the weather brings a special glow to the image of snow on the sculpture and the grayish blue background brings an atmosphere of mystery as the enigmatic sculpture.

This sphinx seem to be quite content, in spite of the weather. A good POV and good colours. A very pleasant picture!

Ciao Giorgio. Very nice framed this statue and the snow falling adds a nice texture to it. Good colors and nice sharpness. A great job. Have a nice weekend.
