The Sphinx is a mythical creature with the head of a human and the body of a lion; and sometimes the wings of a bird. The mythical creature was first observed through the Egyptians which usually had a male head, but the Greeks had their own interpretations which lead to the Sphinx having a head of a woman. These wonderful beings were known for their strength and were the guardians flanking the entrances to temples.
