Naming of the Great Sphinx of Egypt is a daunting task for those who find simple things complicated. Our author has a "picture" used to create the Sphinx, thus identifying the person.
WHO IS REALLY REPRESENTED BY THE SPHINX??
WOULD WE RECOGNIZE THE FACE OF THE PERSON BEHIND THE SPHINX?
Look at the following sketch of the Sphinx from the early 1800's. Do you think this is/was someone's imagination or do you think the hole
the Sphinx sits in actually filled up with sand? Do you realize the
Sphinx base sits 115 feet in altitude lower than the Great Pyramid which sits nearby? Are you aware the Sphinx sits in a hole that was once filled with water, and has since filled with sand many times?
