"Head of the Sphinx carved in about 2500 BC
the face is that of the Pharaoh Khafre. The face is 4.1 m wide."
"The Sphinx is 73 m long and 20 m high. Carved out of the rock, different layers have eroded at different rates. The head is cut from much harder strata than much of the lower body."
"The Sphinx viewed from the East with the Sphinx temple in the foreground and Khafre's Pyramid in the background."
