Summary

Experts in various fields share their theories on the Great Sphinx of Giza. Egyptologist Vassil Dobrev believes that the statue was made by the pharaoh Khafre in tribute to his father, who built the Great Pyramid of Giza, while geologist Colin Reader reveals how weathering of the stone has led him to form a conflicting theory. Meanwhile, architect Jonathan Foyle believes it was originally a statue of a lion, that was given a human head at a later date.
