It looks like it's a re-worked something or other ? Was it always a sphynx, or are there theories it may have been something else, and made over ?

(even though there is no proof that they were actually made by slaves, but actually there is evidence they were paid workers.)



When I first saw the picture I laughed, but I was worried I was going to have to say something about the historicity of the picture. Then I saw your subtext, and I breathed a sigh of relief. Crisis averted... Thumbsup

What is this history book called? Who published it? Wrote it? What year was it published? Is it possible you actually got that information wrong and remembered it wrong? Memory is reconstructive after all.

Here's a better question, who built the Sphinx? Jafrey? Kafrey? I'm probably spelling their names wrong and even off a bitrey...

I think Napoleon's soldiers threw stones at the sphinx ... and damaged the nose.

Edit --- nope that's a tall tale.

And wtf does the phrase to "cut off one's nose to spite one's face" really mean?
