I took a virtual tour of the eastern wing of the museum Louvre called the Egyptian Antiquities department. One of the pieces I viewed is called the Great Sphinx of Tanis. The other was the Statue of Nakhthorheb kneeling in prayer. Both are from the period of B.C.
The Great Sphinx of Tanis is from the Old Kingdom from 2600 BC. The artist is unknown, but was found in the ruins of the Temple of Amun at Tanis in 1825.
