The nose and the goatee are broken off. The Great Sphinx of Giza is a limestone statue of a reclining sphinx, a mythical creature with the head of a human, and the body of a lion. Facing directly from west to east, it stands on the Giza Plateau on the west bank of the Nile in Giza, Egypt. The face of the Sphinx appears to represent the pharaoh Khafre.
Great Sphinx of Giza
The Sphinx was carved from the remains of a limestone mound used as a quarry for the pyramid of Cheops. Remains of paint on the ear of the Sphinx suggest that the figure was originally painted in color. Thutmose IV erected between the paws of the Sphinx the so-called stele of dreams, which was reported by an inscription from his life and calling to the pharaoh.
