Excerpt from Recherches d'Art Egyptien, Vol. 1: Les Monuments Dits Hycsos Le ciseau habile qui a sculpte le corps peut sans aucun doute avoir ete celui d'un artiste egyptien; mais je n'oserais pas en dire autant de la main qui a modele la face avec une energie si particuliere. Les sphinx d'origine egyptienne frappent surtout par leur tranquille majeste. Les tetes sont le plus souvent des portraits; et cependant, l'oeil est toujours calme et bien ouvert, la bouche toujours souriante, les lignes du visage toujours arrondies; surtout remarquez que les sphinx egyptiens n'abandonnent presque jamais la grande coiffure aux ailes evasees qui se marie si bien a l'ensemble paisible du monument. Ici, vous etes loin de reconnaitre ce type. La tete des sphinx de San est d'un art auquel je ne saurais veritablement rien comparer. Les yeux sont petits, le nez est vigoureux et arque en meme temps que plat, les joues sont grosses en meme temps que creuses, le menton est saillant, et la bouche se fait remarquer par la maniere dont elle s'abaisse aux extremites.
