According to the old nations the Sphinx we know had its twin which was wrecked about 1,000 and 1,200 AD.
Lot of people think that it is unusual there is no second Great Sphinx in Giza, particularly after discovering that many descriptions include man sphinx as well as woman sphinx. For instance, Aker, the God of earth and death, is often portrayed like two reclining sphinxes or lions, in some cases back to back with their bodies joined. So the question is where is the twin of the Great Sphinx of Giza, probably turned to west and back to back? Archeologists add that the old Egyptians though that the sun passed through a passageway inside the Earth every night and a two sphinxes protected each end. Where did the twin of the Sphinx of Giza disappear?
Although it has been claimed for quite some time that there was another Sphinx, archeologists and writers Gerry Cannon and Malcolm Hutton are allegedly writing a paper uncovering that its remains are covered in a hill by the big one. Although they have some new thoughts on the age of the Great Sphinx, most of their study appears to be founded on earlier work done by Egyptologist Bassam El Shammaa.
El Shammaa wrote that the Dream Stela – a vertical stone cut in the time of the ruling of Thutmosis IV around 1400 BCE – depicts two sphinxes. Second stele unmistakably shows two sphinxes. The alleged Catalog Stela – was from 670 BCE and displayed at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo – shows proofs that Cheops needed to restore the neck of the Sphinx after it got struck by lightning. Moving back to current time, El Shammaa indicates to photos captured by NASA’s Endeavor Satellite displaying an underground irregularity close to the Great Sphinx. He believes those to be the remnants of the second Sphinx and thinks that it was struck by lightning and wrecked unrecoverably because of a metal crown displayed on certain portrayals.
Cannon and Hutton think that this lightning strike would have happened around 1000 and 1200 CE and the hill most likely has the broken stones. But they claim that the two Sphinxes are far older than presently acknowledged 4500 years. Cannon states in an interview with Express.co.uk that the Sphinx was supposed to have been cut when there was no sand around. One cannot cut a stone when it is covered by sand. The time when it was not covered by sand was around 12,000 years ago when the Egyptians did not exist.
Except this hypothesis there are the corrosion signs on the Great Sphinx that were created when the Giza plateau was submerged or under heavy rains so the 12000-year-old theory appears to be more convincing.
Lot of these hypotheses have been suggested before, however the paper should unite them all. Although there is no sign when Cannon and Hutton’s book will be published, El Shammaa is on hold. He has asked for licenses to excavate in the hill near the Sphinx to search for the second missing one.
Perhaps it wouldn’t like to be found. Will he discover it or pass over attempting?
