Summary
"For 45 centuries, the Great Sphinx has cast its enigmatic gaze over Egypt's Giza Plateau. The biggest and oldest statue in a land of colossal ancient monuments, its scale is staggering. This strange half-human, half-lion image has inspired countless fantastic theories about its origins. But surprisingly, the scribes of the period when it was built--during Egypt's Old Kingdom--passed over it in silence. Why?''--Set slipcase
