Description

Marvel at the wonders of the ancient world when you come to visit the Alabaster Sphinx. Originally carved during the 18th dynasty, this was made to honor a pharaoh of that time period. This mythical sculpture weighs over eighty tons, is 26 feet long and is a spectacle to behold. Your family will love to see the sheer craftsmanship it takes to make a statue like this and especially one out of alabaster, a material very rarely used in sculptures. When you come to Cairo, make sure to enjoy the legend of the sphinxes.
