Dicono che la Sfinge,faccia la guardia alla piramide di Chefren, E' la più antica statua monumentale d'Egitto. Gli archeologi la collocano intorno al 2500 a.c. e ne attribuiscono l'ispirazione a Chefren. È alta 20 m e ha il corpo allungato, le zampe protese e un copricapo reale. Fu scolpita in un affioramento di roccia naturale sulla cui base furono aggiunti alcuni blocchi di pietra in occasione delle numerose ristrutturazioni, a partire dalla XVIII dinastia. Sono tanti i racconti sul naso della Sfinge di Giza, secondo le quali la sua distruzione avvenne o per un colpo sparato da un mamelucco, un ottomano o un francese. In realtà andò perso prima del XV secolo. In origine la Sfinge aveva anche una finta barba stilizzata, simbolo di regalità, ma anch'essa scomparve. Un pezzo di roccia prelevato dal luogo in cui essa sorgeva sulla sabbia oggi è conservato nel British Museum di Londra. Critiche e commenti sempre super graditi. Grazie.
