- The Sphinxes are the most mystical creatures of ancient Egypt. By far the most famous Sphinx is that of Giza; however, this is far from being the only sphinx in Egypt. In fact, there are scores of Sphinxes all over the country. The Alabaster Sphinx is an impressive, 8 x 4 meter (25 x 13 foot)-structure. This Sphinx is particularly special because it is made from alabaster - a material rarely used for construction. Alabaster is mythically associated, mythically speaking with the sun and solar powers. Well worth a visit.
