The Sphinx

By: Isaac, and Alex

How the sphinx was built

The sphinx was built in the 4th dynasty by the pharaoh named Khafre. The sphinx was carved straight out of bedrock.

Why They Built The Sphinx

The Egyptians built the sphinx to represent kahfre. Some people think that khafre didn't build it that his father built it.

The Mystery of The Sphinx

The mystery of the sphinx is that the sphinx was built before Egypt existed, because the erosion looks like water erosion, but there has not been any big rain storms in Egypt for over 3000 years. There is another mystery of the sphinx and it is that napoleon's army came and defeated Egypt. Then he made them shoot off the nose to show the Egyptians that it was just a statue.
