This has to do with science and structures. I want to also know that if you used any clues to find the function then please let me know and when I talk about function I mean the structures’ job.
A very good question! And, sadly, one that no one really knows the answer to. Egyptologies continue to debate fiercely the true origin and purpose of the Great Sphynx at Egypt. Many assume the monument was bult during the reign of the Pharaoh Khafra (BC2558 – BC2532), the same pharaoh who comissioned the first pyramid at Giza, and that the statue has his head. It’s possible that the statue is even older, however.
As for the statue’s purpose, pharaoh’s reguarly built massive momnuments to thesmeleves so that their majesty would live on after death, and instill respect in awe in the generations that follow. Given the Sphinx’s placement, maybe he is meant to guard the pyramids behind him? There are relatively few surviving inscriptions regarding the Sphinx and its purpose, so perhaps we’ll never know…
However, recently archaeologists have discovered some chambers and pathways within the sphinx, although most have yet to be excavated. Can’t wait to see what they find!
