The Sphinx is an ancient monster, a cross between a lion and a man. The body of a lion and the head of a man, to be precise. We were inspired by the the Egyptian statue of Tunakhamun and the stone Sphinx monument near the pyramids in Giza for the design of this guy. This is not a complicated project, although it looks like it consists of many parts. It will appeal to those clayers who dabble in millefiori, because we use some cross-sections here for the attire of the monster.
