In the myths of the Ancient Egyptians, a sphinx was a creature with a lion’s body and a person’s head. Statues of sphinxes were often built to guard tombs and temples and these commonly had the head of a Pharaoh or a god. The most famous of these statues, the Great Sphinx, is said to have special power and mystery. Although nothing has been found yet, some people believe that there might be hidden rooms and passageways beneath the Great Sphinx.
