The Great Sphinx
Over 4,500 years ago, the Great Sphinx was carved
out of a quarry on the Giza Plateau.
It has the body of a lion and the head of a man.
It is part of a larger complex with Temples and
causeways.
It is also part of the much larger complex containing
the Giza Pyramids.
Sphinx
Great Pyramid
Pyramid of Khafre
Pyramid of Menkaure
It is speculated the head bears the visage of
Khafre, the ruler of Egypt who commissioned it.
Legend is that Napoleon had a cannon shoot the
nose off, but the reality is that it was missing by the
time he got there, destroyed by Turks over a
hundred years before.
This is how it is imagined to have originally looked.
Between the paws is the “dream stella”, which is
inscribed with a story, that Thutmosis, if he cleared
the sand from the Sphinx, would become king of
Egypt.
Some have claimed that the Sphinx has been
weathered by rain. This is open to debate, but
climatologists have recently revealed it is possible
that for its first 500 years, the weather was much
wetter on the Giza Plateau.
While we think we know why the Sphinx was carved
and the mighty Pyramids built, there are always
possibilities.
Especially for a fiction writer.
Area 51: The Sphinx
Dr. Lisa Duncan and Special Forces officer Mike
Turcotte know better than anyone that no secret
is safe for long—especially one that offers untold
power. Case in point: no sooner does Turcotte’s
elite Area 51 team uncover a dormant alien ship
in earth orbit than a group of alien-human hybrids
seizes it and uses its technology to commandeer
a satellite array bristling with nuclear missiles.
Now they’re demanding that humankind hand
over the key to an ancient stash of alien
technology…or watch an entire continent be
reduced to atomic rubble.
Doom seems certain, as the required key is
believed lost to the ages—until an anthropologist
discovers the first of many clues to its hiding
place. As Duncan and Turcotte race to reach the
key—and the powerful treasure it can unlock—
ahead of their alien foes, the quest leads them
deep into a deadly maze within the Great Sphinx
of Giza. The prize? Nothing less than the
legendary Ark of the Covenant.
