  So, what the answer is???

Try to guess the answer to the riddle of the Great Sphynx.
That is to answer: whom the face might depict? There's still no certain answer as to this point. No, seriously, you just should pay a visit to the mystical (and misterious animal). The Great Sphynx is unusual in many respects. To name just one, it was really uncharacteristic for Ancient Egypt to depict a creature that was a mix of a man and an animal with the body of an animal and the head of a man, usually it was the other way around.
