Pyramid and Sfinx Claimed


Be the first to review

The perfect pyramid shape was adopted by the Egyptian builders because in addition to the cult of the pharaohs, that of the Sun was also practiced: the edges of the Pyramid would represent the sun’s rays that descend on the earth and the Pyramid itself the ladder to climb to heaven. The Egyptians were very precise in orienting each of the four faces in the direction of one of the cardinal points, as the three great Pyramids of Giza testify.
The Sphinx depicts a mythological creature with the body of a lion and the head of a reclining man. It rises in the eastern part of the complex and faces east; currently Egyptologists believe that the face of the Great Sphinx is that of Chefren.
