My theory on the Sphinx is this: there is sufficient physical, artistic, cultural and weathering evidence to strongly suggest that the face of the Sphinx is the face of a female Nubian shaman/leader who had an enormous impact on the lives of the preliterate Neolithic inhabitants of the Nile delta, an impact so great that she was held to be a living Goddess and honored as such by carving her face on on a rocky outcropping on the Giza plateau—an outcropping that was gradually transformed into what we now know as the Great Sphinx of Giza.
