Today I did nothing important or really anything at all, but I did watch part the The Sphinx Unmasked on the Discovery channel. “The Sphinx is the largest free-standing stone sculpture on earth. But for most of the 4,500 years of its existence, its true origin and the identity of its face have been cloaked in mystery. An Egyptologist is on the verge of cracking the riddle.” Sounds cool huh!! This Egyptologist is trying to prove who built it and who it was built in the likeness of!
For years everyone believed that the Sphinx was made by the Pharaoh Khafre, whose Pyramid lays behind the Sphinx, but there is reason to believe that the pyramid was built around the Sphinx! The far side of the Sphinx on the Giza plateau is the Pharaoh Khufu ‘s Pyramid. It is believed that though this Egyptologist finding that the Sphinx’s face was made in the likeness of Pharaoh Khufu to reinstate the power of the pharaohs, but it was not built by him. It looks as if after the great Pharaoh’s death his son, Djedefra decided to make something great after his father.
Though my looking I just found the Egyptologist that this did the reseach for this piece is a French Egyptologist named Vassil Dobrev.

That is pretty cool! Just though I would share my finding with everyone.! ^^
