The Great Sphinx

Geologists now believe that the Great Sphinx may be 50,000 years old.  They reached this conclusion on the weathering at the base of the statue.
Some scientists believe that the Great Sphinx was originally a statue of the god Anubis. Anubis was the god of cemeteries and mummification.
The Great Sphinx was carved again during the reign of Khafre in his image.
