The acient symbol of the great sphinx
The Sphinx itself actually represents the Pharaoh's power in Egypt. It also represents the God Horus (Osiris's son) who was the god of government and leadership Egypt. Getting back to the face topic, did you know that by the middle kingdom in Egypt no one knew who's face was on the sphinx!? That doesn't make any sense. However if you put it a certain way Pharaoh Khafare was already dead for a really long time. This is the god Horus himself. Besides the bird head he might have looked somthing like this. I mean the world was created like not long after he was so he'd get a work out hunting and stuff.
