An upcoming book seeks to rewrite history with a wild new claim speculating at the possibility that a second Sphinx might be buried in Giza.
Their claim, as established by historian authors Gerry Cannon and Malcolm Hutton, is based on a long-standing theory that the Great Sphinx of Giza had a counterpart.
This is due to the fact that in every Ancient Egyptian depiction of a Sphinx has always come in pairs. They were believed to represent duality, particularly as a male and female, and represented the transformation of the sun into the moon, which the Egyptians believed occurred when the Sun traveled through the earth and emerged as the moon, guarded on each end by a Sphinx.
This makes the Great Sphinx in Giza so a peculiarity, given that it’s all alone. Going even further, the two Historians believe they may have discovered where it could have been buried. They suspect the Giza Sphinx’s female counterpart is buried in a mound guarding one of the Great Pyramids.
I agree with the theory that:
The human face has been carved from an original lions head. Thats why its smaller than a natural head should be.
It was damaged, some king, the guy whose face is on the sphinx, fixed up the abandoned cities in ruin and dedicated this site to himself.
This was before modern day egyptian peoples moved into the area after eons as nomads.
Of course this would be hidden from the public
