Whatever the head originally represented, it should be obvious when you stop to think about it, that the body is MUCH "older" than the head. Or to be more exact, the carving on the body is much older than the carving on the head. Consider - look at the amount of wear/erosion on the head versus the amount of wear/erosion on the body, and keep in mind two factors: the head was re-carved in ancient times, and the body has been mostly buried in sand [saving wear and tear] for many centuries. We might expect more wear on the head, but the opposite is the case. If the head and all the restoration work were gone, no one would be able to guess what it was, I think.

In the face of that, just how can anyone argue against the extreme age of the Sphinx, or against the theories of West and Schoch?
