The Sphinx Statue of Egypt

The truly amazing Sphinx of Giza may very well be oldest, the largest and in all likelihood the most important statue in the ancient world as well as an world-renowned icon of the classic Egyptian Empire. It is an enormous 73.5 meters (241 foot long) as well as 20m (66 ft.) tall. It offers the form of a couchant lion along with the head of a man sporting the Nemes headgear of a pharaoh of Egypt (while others have contended it initially held the head of a lion and was subsequently re carved).
