The pyramids and the sculpture


In the capital of Egypt (El Cairo), there are a lot of pyramids, but the most importants are the Giza.
The Egyptians began building pyramids long time ago, along the Old Empire and the oldest are about five thousand years.

This sculpture, depicting a lion with a human face (thought to represent the pharaoh Khafra) is contemporaneous with the pyramids, is 70 meters long and 20 tall. When I had a thousand years old, Pharaoh Tuthmosis IV between their legs did sculpt a scene depicting a dream, in which the Sphinx gave him the throne in return for saving her to die buried under the desert sand. Another thousand-odd years later, in Roman times, a sanctuary was excavated within the sphinx. And when it was over four thousand years, these changes later became destructive rather than constructive damaging their eyes and tearing his nose.
