The Great Sphinx is a large human-headed lion that was carved from a mound of natural rock. It is located in Giza where it guards the front of Khafra’s pyramid.
Legends have been told for many years about the Great Sphinx. These stories tell about the powers and mysteries of this sphinx. Some people even believe that there are hidden passage ways or rooms underneath the Great Sphinx, but nothing has been found yet.
The beginning of one story about the Great Sphinx is written on a stele between the sphinx’s paws.
The story reads that one day, a young prince fell asleep next to the Great Sphinx. He had been hunting all day, and hence was very tired. He then dreamt that the Great Sphinx promised that he would become the ruler of Upper and Lower Egypt if he cleared away the sand covering its body (the Great Sphinx was covered up to its neck).
Since the rest of the story is gone, so you will have to use your imagination to work out the ending. This stele was put up by the pharaoh Thutmosis IV who lived around 1400 B.C.
Furthermore the beard was added during the New Kingdom hundreds of years after the Great Sphinx was first carved.
From the earliest dynasties onward, Egypt developed a very high degree of civilization. And the exploitation of metals – copper, bronze and precious metals such as gold and silver – was an essential part of their culture. The Egyptian copper-smith must have been a man of importance since he had to make saws, chisels, knives. As well as dishes and trays, all out of copper or bronze, for artisans of the many trades.
The history of copper in architecture can be linked to its durability, corrosion resistance, prestigious appearance, and also the ability to form complex shapes. For centuries, craftsmen and designers utilized these attributes to build aesthetically pleasing and long-lasting building systems.
Like all our other exquisite jewelry, this plate is handcrafted, and highly detailed by our talented craftsmen. It is also top quality and can last for a lifetime.
