Bibendum
The eternal symbol of Egypt, the enigmatic Sphinx of Giza, has made an impression across the ages. This monumental creature (20m high and 57m long), symbol of the Pharaoh's power, with a lion's body and human face, was most probably fashioned by Chepren, hence being linked to his pyramid. Contrary to legend, it lost its polychromy - and its nose - well before Napoleon arrived in Egypt.
