The largest, most famous sphinx is the Great Sphinx of Gizah next to the Great Pyramids on the west bank of the Nile and facing east (29°58′31″N 31°08′15″E). Although the construction date is uncertain, the head now is believed to bear the likeness of the pharaoh Khafra. Which names the builders gave to these statues is not known. At the Great Sphinx site, a 1400 BCE inscription on a stele belonging to the 18th dynasty pharaoh Thutmose IV lists the names of 3 aspects of the local sun deity of that period, Khepera–Rê–Atum. Many pharaohs had their heads carved atop the guardian statues for their tombs to show their close relationship with the powerful solar deity Sekhmet, a lioness.

The Great Pyramids of Giza

Ancient Egyptians during the third and fourth dynasties perfected the construction of pyramids as burial chambers for their kings.

The Great Pyramids of Giza have been a part of the Egyptian landscape for thousands of years. Here, they appear almost like mountains in the background as a woman leads cows across a field.

Menkaure’s pyramid had an original height of 65.5 meters and was the smallest of the three major pyramids at the Giza Necropolis.

It now stands at 61 m tall with a base of 108.5 m. It was constructed of limestone and granite.

The first sixteen courses of the exterior were made of red granite.

The upper portion was cased in the normal manner with Tura limestone.

Part of the granite was left in the rough.

Incomplete projects such as this pyramid help archaeologists understand the methods used to build pyramids and temples.

An artist’s interpretation of what the great Sphinx 𓎛𓅱𓃭𓏤 “hw” or 𓊏𓊪𓃭 “šsp” might have looked like today if it was left undamaged through the centuries in Egypt:

Black Land – Kemet 𓆎𓅓𓏏𓊖 “kmt” OR

Red Land – Deshret 𓂧𓈙𓄿𓅟𓈉 “dšrt” OR

Beloved Land – Tameri 𓇾𓌸𓂋𓆵𓇋𓊖𓊖 “tA-meri”.𓏤
