Over the centuries it has had many superstitions held against it, and it is not really known what the Sphinx purpose was.
It is 50 Meters Long and 22 meters high, and built almost entirely from one peice of limestone, carved out of the quarry on which it stands.
The nose and beard have worn away badly and plans are underway to restore the Sphinx to its former glory. I personally feel it should be left as it is.
