    Good video August, have you ever come across any credible info about the hole in the sphinx's head?


    Sketch by Vivant Denon in 1798:

    Am not that well versed on Egyptian lore (or research background) but the story goes that in 1914 Professor George A. Reisner excavated the hole and found a temple in there.

    Cheers.

    The Sphinx has lots of holes not many people have been allowed to examine them though so where some of them lead to is a mystery. Zahi Hawas isn't one to allow people to play with his Sphinx. Many theories exist the video I have attached the guy believes it was for a giant metal bolt to hold the Sphinx's head on (?) It could have just been people digging into the head to see what was underneath , who knows .


    There is a hole in the Sphinx’s head and it is now Covered Up

    Cats were shown under the chairs of females only in Ancient Egypt, never under a mans.

    No worries mate and appreciate the info - don't think the George Reisner tale is too credible but there's another relevant account below from 1837 - whatever the case it's all very fascinating and am going through all the info in this thread.



    Cheers.

    He looks like a young one. Brought up from a cub no doubt he is quite tame.
